    A regression was found in the patch applied in DSA 1919-1 to smarty,
    which caused compilation failures on some specific templates. This
    update corrects the fix. For reference, the full advisory text below.
    
    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 stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.20-1.3.
    
    The testing (squeeze) and unstable distribution (sid) are not affected
    by this regression.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.

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