    Robert Luberda discovered a buffer overflow in the syslog logging code of 
    Super, a tool to execute scripts (or other commands) as if they were root.
    The default Debian configuration is not affected.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.30.0-2+lenny1. Due to a technical limitation in the Debian
    archive scripts this update cannot be released synchronously with the
    stable update. It will be available shortly.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.30.0-3+squeeze1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your super packages.
