    It was discovered that acpid, a daemon for delivering ACPI events, is
    prone to a denial of service attack by opening a large number of UNIX
    sockets, which are not closed properly.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.8-1lenny1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-5etch1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.10-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your acpid packages.
