    It was discovered that Apache POI, a Java implementation of the
    Microsoft Office file formats, would allocate arbitrary amounts of
    memory when processing crafted documents.  This could impact the
    stability of the Java virtual machine.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6+dfsg-1+squeeze1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libjakarta-poi-java packages.
