    It has been discovered that the original patch for a buffer overflow in svc_auth_gss.c in the RPCSEC_GSS RPC library in MIT Kerberos 5 (CVE-2007-3999, DSA-1368-1) was insufficient to protect from arbitrary code execution in some environments.

    It has been discovered that the original patch for a buffer overflow in
    svc_auth_gss.c in the RPCSEC_GSS RPC library in MIT Kerberos 5
    (CVE-2007-3999, DSA-1368-1) was insufficient to protect from arbitrary
    code execution in some environments.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) does not contain a librpcseggss
    package.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.14-2etch3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.14-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your librpcsecgss package.
