    Package        : cyrus-sasl
    Vulnerability  : unsanitised input
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0884
    Debian Bug     : 275498
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in the Cyrus implementation of the
    SASL library, the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method
    for adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.  The
    library honors the environment variable SASL_PATH blindly, which
    allows a local user to link against a malicious library to run
    arbitrary code with the privileges of a setuid or setgid application.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.27-3woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.28-6.2 of cyrus-sasl and in version 2.1.19-1.3 of
    cyrus-sasl2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libsasl packages.
