    It was discovered that Request Tracker, an issue tracking system,
    stored passwords in its database by using an insufficiently strong
    hashing method. If an attacker would have access to the password
    database, he could decode the passwords stored in it.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.7-5+lenny5.
    
    The testing distribution (squeeze) will be fixed soon.
