Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem-Type   : local

CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3123
Debian Bug     : 371076

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.

version 1.4.1-17.

We recommend that you upgrade your cfs package.
