    Joan Calvet discovered that httrack, a utility to create local copies of
    websites, is vulnerable to a buffer overflow potentially allowing to
    execute arbitrary code when passed excessively long URLs.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.40.4-3.1+etch1.
    
    For the testing (lenny) and unstable distribution (sid), this problem has
    been fixed in version 3.42.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your httrack package.
