    Several issues have been discovered in libcgroup, a library to control
    and monitor control groups:
    
    CVE-2011-1006
    
       Heap-based buffer overflow by converting list of controllers for
       given task into an array of strings could lead to privilege
       escalation by a local attacker.
    
    CVE-2011-1022
    
        libcgroup did not properly check the origin of Netlink messages,
        allowing a local attacker to send crafted Netlink messages which
        could lead to privilege escalation.
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) does not contain libgroup packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.36.2-3+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libcgroup packages.
