    This update corrects regressions introduced by the devscripts security
    update, DSA-1878-1.  The original announcement was:
    
    Raphael Geissert discovered that uscan, a program to check for
    availability of new source code versions which is part of the
    devscripts package, runs Perl code downloaded from potentially
    untrusted sources to implement its URL and version mangling
    functionality.  This update addresses this issue by reimplementing the
    relevant Perl operators without relying on the Perl interpreter,
    trying to preserve backwards compatibility as much as possible.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.26etch5.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.10.35lenny7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed in
    version 2.10.55.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your devscripts package.
    
    Upgrade instructions

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
