    CVE-2007-6454
    
        Luigi Auriemma discovered that PeerCast is vulnerable to a heap
        overflow in the HTTP server code, which allows remote attackers to
        cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
        long SOURCE request.
    
    CVE-2008-2040
    
        Nico Golde discovered that PeerCast, a P2P audio and video streaming
        server, is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the HTTP Basic
        Authentication code, allowing a remote attacker to crash PeerCast or
        execure arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5.4-1.1etch0.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), the first issue has been fixed in
    0.5.4-1.2. The second issue will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnome-peercast package.
