    Package        : aircrack-ng
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-2057
    
    It was discovered that aircrack-ng, a WEP/WPA security analysis tool,
    performs insufficient validation of 802.11 authentication packets, which
    allows the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain aircrack-ng packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.2-7etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.7-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your aircrack-ng packages. Packages for
    the arm, sparc and mipsen architectures are not yet available. They
    will be provided later.
