Package        : mc
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.
