    Package        : s3ql
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0485
    
    Nikolaus Rath discovered that s3ql, a file system for online data
    storage, used the pickle functionality of the Python programming
    language in an unsafe way.  As a result, a malicious storage backend
    or man-in-the-middle attacker was able execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.11.1-3+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your s3ql packages.
