    Package        : hostapd
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2213
    Debian Bug     : 365897
    
    Matteo Rosi and Leonardo Maccari discovered that hostapd, a wifi network
    authenticator daemon, performs insufficient boundary checks on a key length
    value, which might be exploited to crash the service.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain hostapd packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.3.7-2sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your hostapd package.
