    Colin Walters discovered that the dbus_signature_validate function in 
    dbus, a simple interprocess messaging system, is prone to a denial of 
    service attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in 
    version 1.0.2-1+etch2.
    
    For the testing distribution (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid) 
    this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dbus package.
