    Package        : cipe
    Problem type   : DoS attack
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Larry McVoy found a bug in the packet handling code for the CIPE
    VPN package: it did not check if a received packet was too short
    and could crash.
    
    This has been fixed in version 1.3.0-3, and we recommend that you
    upgrade your cipe packages immediately.
    
    Please note that the package only contains the needed kernel patch,
    you will have to build the kernel modules for your kernel with the
    updated source from the cipe-source package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
