    Michal Hlavinka discovered that the fix for code execution in the
    map_yp_alias function, known as CVE-2009-1579 and released in DSA 1802-1,
    was incomplete. This update corrects the fix for that function.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.9a-5.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.15-4+lenny2.

    We recommend that you upgrade your squirrelmail package.
