    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-6890
    
    A regression has been found on the denyhosts packages fixing
    CVE-2013-6890.  This regression could cause an attempted breakin attempt
    to be missed by denyhosts, which would then fail to enforce a ban.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6-7+deb6u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6-10+deb7u3.
    
    For the testing (jessie) and unstable (sid) distribution, the package denyhosts
    has been removed, and its users are encouraged to switch to an alternative like
    fail2ban.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your denyhosts packages.
