    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in nd, a command-line WebDAV
    interface, whereby long strings received from the remote server could
    overflow fixed-length buffers.  This vulnerability could be exploited
    by a remote attacker in control of a malicious WebDAV server to
    execute arbitrary code if the server was accessed by a vulnerable
    version of nd.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.5.0-1woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.2-1.
