    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0763
    
    An unfixed buffer overflow has been discovered by Andrew V. Samoilov
    in mc, the midnight commander, a file browser and manager.  This update
    also fixes a regression from DSA 497.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.55-1.2woody6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has already been fixed.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mc packages.
