    Debian Bug     : 746498 749183
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in dpkg that allow file
    modification through path traversal when unpacking source packages with
    especially-crafted patch files.
    
    This update had been scheduled before the end of security support for
    the oldstable distribution (squeeze), hence an exception has been made
    and was released through the security archive. However, no further updates
    should be expected.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.15.11.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.16.15.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed
    soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.17.10.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dpkg packages.
