    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3999
    
    It was discovered that a buffer overflow of the library for secure RPC
    communication over the rpcsec_gss protocol allows the execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain librpcsecgss.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.14-2etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your librpcsecgss packages.
