    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4262
    Debian Bug     : 385893
    
    Will Drewry of the Google Security Team discovered several buffer overflows
    in cscope, a source browsing tool, which might lead to the execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version cscope_15.5-1.1sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 15.5+cvs20060902-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cscope package.
