    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.
