    A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in bogofilter, a software
    package for classifying mail messages as spam or non-spam.  Crafted
    mail messages with invalid base64 data could lead to heap corruption
    and, potentially, arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.2-2+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
