    Package        : gnocatan
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows, denial of service
    Problem-Type   : remote
    
    Bas Wijnen discovered that the gnocatan server is vulnerable to
    several buffer overflows which could be exploited to execute arbitrary
    code on the server system
    
    For the stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.1-5woody2.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a gnocatan package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your gnocatan package.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
