    Package        : lha
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0234 CAN-2004-0235
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in lha:
     - CAN-2004-0234 - Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the
       get_header function in header.c for LHA 1.14 allow remote attackers
       or local users to execute arbitrary code via long directory or file
       names in an LHA archive, which triggers the overflow when testing
       or extracting the archive.
     - CAN-2004-0235 - Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in LHA
       1.14 allow remote attackers or local users to create arbitrary
       files via an LHA archive containing filenames with (1) .. sequences
       or (2) absolute pathnames with double leading slashes
    For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
    fixed in version 1.14i-2woody1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.14i-8.
    We recommend that you update your lha package.
