Package        : canna
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no

The canna package as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 can be
remotely exploited to gain access. This could be done by overflowing
a buffer by sending a SR_INIT command with a very long usernamd or
groupname.

This has been fixed in version 3.5b2-24slink1, and recommend that you
upgrade your canna package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
