    Package        : masqmail
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1279
    
    A set of buffer overflows have been discovered in masqmail, a mail
    transport agent for hosts without permanent internet connection.  In
    addition to this privileges were dropped only after reading a user
    supplied configuration file.  Together this could be exploited to gain
    unauthorized root access to the machine on which masqmail is
    installed.
    
    These problems have been fixed in version 0.1.16-2.1 for the current
    stable distribution (woody) and in version 0.2.15-1 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
    affected since it doesn't contain a masqmail package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your masqmail package immediately.
    
    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.
