    It was discovered that php-net-ping, a PHP PEAR module to execute ping
    independently of the Operating System, performs insufficient input
    sanitising, which might be used to inject arguments (no CVE yet) or
    execute arbitrary commands (CVE-2009-4024) on a system that uses
    php-net-ping.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-1+lenny1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-1+etch1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed
    soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-1.1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your php-net-ping packages.
