    CVE Ids        : CAN-2002-1581
    
    A directory traversal vulnerability was discovered in mailreader
    whereby remote attackers could view arbitrary files with the
    privileges of the nph-mr.cgi process (by default, www-data) via
    relative paths and a null byte in the configLanguage parameter.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.3.29-5woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your mailreader package.
