    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in mapserver, a CGI-based
    web framework to publish spatial data and interactive mapping applications.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2011-2703
    
      Several instances of insufficient escaping of user input, leading to
      SQL injection attacks via OGC filter encoding (in WMS, WFS, and SOS
      filters).
    
    CVE-2011-2704
    
      Missing length checks in the processing of OGC filter encoding that can
      lead to stack-based buffer overflows and the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.0.3-3+lenny7.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.6.5-2+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mapserver packages.
