    Package        : heartbeat
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Upstream URL   :  https://linux-ha.org/security/sec01.txt
    
    Nathan Wallwork discovered a buffer overflow in heartbeat, a subsystem
    for High-Availability Linux.  A remote attacker could send a specially
    crafted TCP packet that overflows a buffer, leaving heartbeat to
    execute arbitrary code as root.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 0.4.9.0l-7.2 for the current
    stable distribution (woody) and version 0.4.9.2-1 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) doesn't
    contain a heartbeat package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your heartbeat package immediately if
    you run internet connected servers that are heartbeat-monitored.
    
    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.
