    Package        : netkit-rwho
    Vulnerability  : missing input validation
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1180
    "Vlad902" discovered a vulnerability in the rwhod program that can be
    used to crash the listening process.  The broadcasting one is
    unaffected.  This vulnerability only affects little endian
    architectures (i.e. on Debian: alpha, arm, alpha, ia64, i386, mipsel
    and s390).
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.17-4woody2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.17-8.
    We recommend that you upgrade your rwhod package.
