    Package        : junkbuster
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1108 CAN-2005-1109
    Several bugs have been found in junkbuster, a HTTP proxy and filter.
    The Common Vulnerability and Exposures project identifies the
    following vulnerabilities:
        James Ranson discovered that an attacker can modify the referrer
        setting with a carefully crafted URL by accidently overwriting a
        global variable.
        Tavis Ormandy from the Gentoo Security Team discovered several
        heap corruptions due to inconsistent use of an internal function
        that can crash the daemon or possibly lead to the execution of
        arbitrary code.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.2-0.2woody1.
    The unstable distribution (sid) doesn't contain the junkbuster package
    We recommend that you upgrade your junkbuster package.
