    Bastian Blank reported a denial of service vulnerability in
    Email::Address, a Perl module for RFC 2822 address parsing and creation.
    Email::Address::parse used significant time on parsing empty quoted
    strings. A remote attacker able to supply specifically crafted input to
    an application using Email::Address for parsing, could use this flaw to
    mount a denial of service attack against the application.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.895-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.905-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.905-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libemail-address-perl packages.
