Package        : cscope
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : local(remote)
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.
