    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0478
    Debian Bug     : 749795
    
    Jakub Wilk discovered that APT, the high level package manager,
    did not properly perform authentication checks for source packages
    downloaded via "apt-get source". This only affects use cases where
    source packages are downloaded via this command; it does not
    affect regular Debian package installation and upgrading.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.7.9+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apt packages.
