    It has been discovered that mldonkey, a client for several P2P
    networks, allows attackers to download arbitrary files using crafted
    requests to the HTTP console.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.5-2+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

    We recommend that you upgrade your mldonkey packages.
