    Dan Rosenberg discovered that in couchdb, a distributed,
    fault-tolerant and schema-free document-oriented database, an insecure
    library search path is used; a local attacker could execute arbitrary
    code by first dumping a maliciously crafted shared library in some
    directory, and then having an administrator run couchdb from this same
    directory.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.0-2+lenny1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your couchdb package.
