    A vulnerability was discovered in libnids, a library used to analyze
    IP network traffic, whereby a carefully crafted TCP datagram could
    cause memory corruption and potentially execute arbitrary code with
    the privileges of the user executing a program which uses libnids
    (such as dsniff).
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1.16-3woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your libnids package.
