    Package        : eric
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3068
    Debian Bug     : 330893
    
    The developers of eric, a full featured Python IDE, have fixed a bug
    in the processing of project files that could lead to the execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an eric package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.2-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.7.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your eric package.
