    Peter Bieringer discovered that the "log" function in the Net::Server
    Perl module, an extensible, general perl server engine, is not safe
    against format string exploits.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.87-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.89-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libnet-server-perl package.
