    The developers of Tor, an anonymizing overlay network for TCP, found 
    three security issues during a security audit. A heap overflow allowed
    the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2011-0427), a denial of service
    vulnerability was found in the zlib compression handling and some key
    memory was incorrectly zeroed out before being freed. The latter two 
    issues do not yet have CVE identifiers assigned. The Debian Security
    Tracker will be updated once they're available:
    https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/source-package/tor
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.1.29-1~lenny+1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem has been fixed in version 0.2.1.29-1.
    
    For the experimental distribution, this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.2.21-alpha-1.
