    The Debian 4.0r1 release contains a file package with the same version number as the last security update (4.17-5etch2), potentially overriding it. This security advisory reissues DSA-1343-1 with a higher version number, to ensure that its changes remain in effect. The changes from Debian 4.0r1 (which fix a minor denial of service issue, CVE-2007-2026) are included as well.

    The Debian 4.0r1 release contains a file package with the same version
    number as the last security update (4.17-5etch2), potentially overriding
    it.  This security advisory reissues DSA-1343-1 with a higher version
    number, to ensure that its changes remain in effect.  The changes from
    Debian 4.0r1 (which fix a minor denial of service issue, CVE-2007-2026)
    are included as well.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.17-5etch3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), the security vulnerability has been
    fixed in version 4.21-1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected by the security
    vulnerability.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your file (4.17-5etch3) package.
