    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-4505
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team discovered that libproxy, a library
    for automatic proxy configuration management, applied insufficient
    validation to the Content-Length header sent by a server providing a
    proxy.pac file. Such remote server could trigger an integer overflow
    and consequently overflow an in-memory buffer.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.3.1-2+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.3.1-5.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libproxy packages.
