    It was discovered that Performance Co-Pilot (pcp), a framework for
    performance monitoring, contains several vulnerabilites.
    
    CVE-2012-3418
    	Multiple buffer overflows in the PCP protocol decoders can
    	cause PCP clients and servers to crash or, potentially,
    	execute arbitrary code while processing crafted PDUs.
    
    CVE-2012-3419
    	The "linux" PMDA used by the pmcd daemon discloses sensitive
    	information from the /proc file system to unauthenticated
    	clients.
    
    CVE-2012-3420
    	Multiple memory leaks processing crafted requests can cause
    	pmcd to consume large amounts of memory and eventually crash.
    
    CVE-2012-3421
    	Incorrect event-driven programming allows malicious clients to
    	prevent other clients from accessing the pmcd daemon.
    
    To address the information disclosure vulnerability, CVE-2012-3419, a
    new "proc" PMDA was introduced, which is disabled by default.  If you
    need access to this information, you need to enable the "proc" PMDA.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.3-squeeze2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pcp packages.
