    It was discovered that auth2db, an IDS logger, log viewer and alert
    generator, is prone to an SQL injection vulnerability, when used with
    multibyte character encodings.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.5-2+dfsg-1+lenny1.
    
    The oldstable distribution (etch) doesn't contain auth2db.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.5-2+dfsg-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your auth2db packages.
