    	bookmarks.
    
    CVE-2012-4734

    	prevention logic.
    
    CVE-2012-4735
    	Several different vulnerabilities in GnuPG processing allow
    	attackers to cause RT to improperly sign outgoing email.
    
    CVE-2012-4884
    	If GnuPG support is enabled, authenticated users attackers can
    	create arbitrary files as the web server user, which may

    Please note that if you run request-tracker3.8 under the Apache web
    server, you must stop and start Apache manually.  The "restart"
    mechanism is not recommended, especially when using mod_perl.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.8.8-7+squeeze6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.7-2 of the request-tracker4 package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker3.8 packages.
