    Package        : axel
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0390
    BugTraq ID     : 13059
    Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
    buffer overflow in axel, a light download accellerator.  When reading
    remote input the program did not check if a part of the input can
    overflow a buffer and maybe trigger the execution of arbitrary code.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0a-1woody1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0b-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your axel package.
