    Package        : libconvert-uulib-perl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1349
    
    Mark Martinec and Robert Lewis discovered a buffer overflow in
    Convert::UUlib, a Perl interface to the uulib library, which may
    result in the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.201-2woody1.
    
    For the testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distributions this problem
    has been fixed in version 1.0.5.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libconvert-uulib-perl package.
