    Package        : fail2ban
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-2178
    
    Krzysztof Katowicz-Kowalewski discovered a vulnerability in fail2ban, a
    log monitoring and system which can act on attack by preventing hosts to
    connect to specified services using the local firewall.
    
    When using fail2ban to monitor Apache logs, improper input validation in
    log parsing could enable a remote attacker to trigger an IP ban on
    arbitrary addresses, thus causing a denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.4-3+squeeze2.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.6-3wheezy2.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.10-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.10-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fail2ban packages.
