    Two vulnerabilities were discovered the distributed filesystem AFS:
    
    CVE-2011-0430
    
       Andrew Deason discovered that a double free in the Rx server
       process could lead to denial of service or the execution of
       arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-0431
    
       It was discovered that insufficient error handling in the
       kernel module could lead to denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.7.dfsg1-6+lenny4. Due to a technical problem with the
    buildd infrastructure the update is not yet available, but will be
    installed into the archive soon.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.12.1+dfsg-4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.14+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openafs packages. Note that in order
    to apply this security update, you must rebuild the OpenAFS kernel module.
