    Calle Dybedahl discovered a bug in lyskom-server which could result in
    a denial of service where an unauthenticated user could cause the
    server to become unresponsive as it processes a large query.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.6-1woody1.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a lyskom-server package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
    2.0.7-2.
    
    We recommend that you update your lyskom-server package.
