    Package        : metamail
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0709
    BugTraq ID     : 16611
    Debian Bug     : 352482
    
    Ulf Harnhammar discoverd a buffer overflow in metamail, an
    implementation of MIME (Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions), that
    could lead to a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary
    code when processing messages.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7-45woody.4.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7-47sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7-51.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your metamail package.
