    Package        : libspf2
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-2469
    
    Dan Kaminsky discovered that libspf2, an implementation of the Sender
    Policy Framework (SPF) used by mail servers for mail filtering, handles
    malformed TXT records incorrectly, leading to a buffer overflow
    condition (CVE-2008-2469).
    
    Note that the SPF configuration template in Debian's Exim configuration
    recommends to use libmail-spf-query-perl, which does not suffer from
    this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.5-4+etch1.
    
    For the testing distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.5.dfsg-5+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libspf2 package.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
