    Package        : kaffeine
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0051
    
    Marcus Meissner discovered that kaffeine, a versatile media player for
    KDE 3, contains an unchecked buffer that can be overwritten remotely
    when fetching remote RAM playlists which can cause the execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain kaffeine packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kaffeine package.
