    It has been discovered that barnowl, a curses-based tty Jabber, IRC, AIM
    and Zephyr client, is prone to a buffer overflow via its "CC:" handling,
    which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.1-4+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.1-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your barnowl packages.
