    Jamie Strandboge noticed that the patch propoused to fix CVE-2011-1760 in 
    OProfile has been incomplete.
    
    For reference, the description of the original DSA, is:
    
    OProfile is a performance profiling tool which is configurable by opcontrol, its
    control utility. Stephane Chauveau reported several ways to inject arbitrary
    commands in the arguments of this utility. If a local unprivileged user is
    authorized by sudoers file to run opcontrol as root, this user could use the
    flaw to escalate his privileges.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.3-2+lenny2.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.6-1.1+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.6-1.4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.6-1.4.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your oprofile packages.
