    Package        : netatalk
    Vulnerability  : arbitrary code execution
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2008-5718
    Debian Bug     : 510585
    
    The update in DSA 1704-1 was incomplete as it missed to escape a few
    important characters which enabled an attacker to overwrite arbitrary
    files.
    
    It was discovered that netatalk, an implementation of the AppleTalk
    suite, is affected by a command injection vulnerability when processing
    PostScript streams via papd.  This is leading to arbitrary remote
    code execution.  Note that this only affects installations that are
    configured to use a pipe command in combination with wildcard symbols
    substituted with values of the printed job.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.3-4+etch2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.4~beta2-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your netatalk package.
