    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 could lead to the execution of
    arbitrary code.  Please 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+etch1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.0.3-11+lenny1.
