    It was discovered a regression of a buffer overflow (CVE-2005-3534) in nbd, 
    the Network Block Device server, that could allow arbitrary code execution
    on the NBD server via a large request.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.9.11-3lenny1.
    
    The stable distribution (squeeze), the testing distribution (wheezy),
    and the unstable distribution (sid) are not affected. This problem was
    fixed prior the release of squeeze in version 1:2.9.16-8.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nbd packages.
