    Debian Bug     : 459961 476241
    
    Three vulnerabilities have been discovered in the mt-daapd DAAP audio
    server (also known as the Firefly Media Server).  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following three
    problems:
    
    CVE-2007-5824
    
        Insufficient validation and bounds checking of the Authorization:
        HTTP header enables a heap buffer overflow, potentially enabling
        the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2007-5825
    
        Format string vulnerabilities in debug logging within the
        authentication of XML-RPC requests could enable the execution of
        arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2008-1771
    
        An integer overflow weakness in the handling of HTTP POST
        variables could allow a heap buffer overflow and potentially
        arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.2.4+r1376-1.1+etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9~r1696-1.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mt-daapd package.
