Package        : davfs2
Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-4362
Debian Bug     : 723034

The update released for davfs2 in DSA 2765 had a version number for
Debian 7 "wheezy" that sorts lower than the version in Debian 6
"squeeze", causing problems on upgrades. This update makes a package
of davfs2 in wheezy available which corrects only the version number.

For reference, the original advisory follows.

Davfs2, a filesystem client for WebDAV, calls the function system() 
insecurely while is setuid root. This might allow a privilege escalation.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.6-1.1+wheezy1.
