    Severel vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tor, an online privacy 
    tool.
    
    CVE-2012-3518
    
      Avoid an uninitialised memory read when reading a vote or consensus
      document that has an unrecognized flavour name. This could lead to
      a remote, resulting in denial of service.
    
    CVE-2012-3519
    
      Try to leak less information about what relays a client is choosing to
      a side-channel attacker.
    
    CVE-2012-4419
    
      By providing specially crafted date strings to a victim tor instance, 
      an attacker can cause it to run into an assertion and shut down
    
    Additionally the update to stable includes the following fixes:
    - - When waiting for a client to renegotiate, don't allow it to add any
      bytes to the input buffer. This fixes a potential DoS issue
      [tor-5934, tor-6007].
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.2.2.39-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version
    0.2.3.22-rc-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tor packages.
