    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Smarty, a PHP
    templating engine. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2008-4810
    
      The _expand_quoted_text function allows for certain restrictions in
      templates, like function calling and PHP execution, to be bypassed.
    
    CVE-2009-1669
    
      The smarty_function_math function allows context-dependent attackers
      to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the equation
      attribute of the math function.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2.6.14-1etch2.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.20-1.2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.
