    Package        : davfs2
    Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
    Problem type   : remote

    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.
