    Florian Weimer discovered two security problems in the Chrony time
    synchronisation software (buffer overflows and use of uninitialised data 
    in command replies).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems will be fixed
    soon in 1.24-3+squeeze1 (due to a technical restriction in the archive
    processing scripts the two updates cannot be released together).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.24-3.1+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your chrony packages.
