    Package        : netkit-telnet-ssl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0469
    iDEFENSE researchers discovered a buffer overflow in the handling of
    the LINEMODE suboptions in telnet clients.  This can lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code when connected to a malicious server.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.17.17+0.1-2woody4.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your telnet-ssl package.
