    stable (Sarge) lead to check_procs not being included for the i386
    architecture. This update fixes this regression. For reference the

    Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in two of
    the plugins for the Nagios network monitoring and management system.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-5198
    
        A buffer overflow has been discovered in the parser for HTTP
        Location headers (present in the check_http module).

    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.5-1etch1.

    fixed in version 1.4-6sarge2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nagios-plugins package.
