    Matt Giuca discovered a buffer overflow in python-cjson, a fast JSON
    encoder/decoder for Python.
    This allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash)
    through a specially-crafted Python script.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.5-1+lenny1
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and the unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
    has been fixed in version 1.0.5-3
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-cjson package.

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