    Package        : dkim-milter
    Vulnerability  : improper assertion
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    It was discovered that dkim-milter, an implementation of the DomainKeys
    Identified Mail protocol, may crash during DKIM verification if it
    encounters a specially-crafted or revoked public key record in DNS.
    
    The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain dkim-milter packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.0.dfsg-1+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.0.dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dkim-milter packages.
