    Rick Patel discovered that atftpd is vulnerable to a buffer overflow
    when a long filename is sent to the server.  An attacker could exploit
    this bug remotely to execute arbitrary code on the server.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.1.1.0woody1.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain an atftp
    package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your atftp package.
