    It was discovered that smbind, a PHP-based tool for managing DNS zones
    for BIND, does not properly validating input.
    An unauthenticated remote attacker could execute arbitrary SQL commands
    or gain access to the admin account.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.7-3+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.7-5, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze)
    shortly.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smbind (0.4.7-3+lenny1) package.
