    Package        : mason
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3118
    Debian Bug     : 222384
    Christoph Martin noticed that upon configuration mason, which
    interactively creates a Linux packet filtering firewall, does not
    install the init script to actually load the firewall during system
    boot.  This will leave the machine without a firewall after a reboot.
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0-2.2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0-3.
    We recommend that you upgrade your mason package.
