    It was discovered that APT, the high level package manager, does not
    properly invalidate unauthenticated data (CVE-2014-0488), performs
    incorrect verification of 304 replies (CVE-2014-0487), does not perform
    the checksum check when the Acquire::GzipIndexes option is used
    (CVE-2014-0489) and does not properly perform validation for binary
    packages downloaded by the apt-get download command (CVE-2014-0490).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.7.9+deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
