    CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2702
    
    Dan Kaminsky and Moxie Marlinspike discovered that kdelibs, core libraries from
    the official KDE release, does not properly handle a '\0' character in a domain
    name in the Subject Alternative Name field of an X.509 certificate, which allows
    man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted
    certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch3
    
    Due to a bug in the archive system, the fix for the stable distribution
    (lenny), will be released as version 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-0lenny3 once it is
    available.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), and the unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem has been fixed in version 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-2.1
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kdelibs pakcages.
