Package        : dropbear
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4178

A buffer overflow has been discovered in dropbear, a lightweight SSH2
server and client, that may allow authenticated users to execute
arbitrary code as the server user (usually root).

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain dropbear packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.45-2sarge0.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.47-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your dropbear package.

sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
