    Package        : apt-cacher
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1854
    
    Eduard Bloch discovered a bug in apt-cacher, a caching system for
    Debian package and source files, that could allow remote attackers to
    execute arbitrary commands on the caching host as user www-data.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.4sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.10.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apt-cacher package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions

    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.

      its next update.
