    Package        : xbuffy
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0469
    
    Michael Niedermayer discovered a vulnerability in xbuffy, an utility for
    displaying message count in mailbox and newsgroup accounts.
    
    By sending carefully crafted messages to a mail or news account
    monitored by xbuffy, an attacker can trigger a stack-based buffer
    overflow, leading to xbuffy crash or even remote code execution.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.bl.3.dfsg-8+deb6u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.bl.3.dfsg-8+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.bl.3.dfsg-9.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.bl.3.dfsg-9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xbuffy packages.
