    Alin Rad Pop discovered that link-grammar, Carnegie Mellon University's
    link grammar parser for English, performed insufficient validation within
    its tokenizer, which could allow a malicious input file to execute
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    4.2.2-4etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this package was not present.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was fixed in version
    4.2.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your link-grammar package.
