    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3123

    Carlo Contavalli discovered an integer overflow in CFS, a cryptographic
    filesystem, which allows local users to crash the encryption daemon.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.1-15sarge1.
