Package        : razor
Vulnerability  : email header parsing error
Problem type   : remote DOS
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-2024

A vulnerability was discovered in the way that Razor parses certain
email headers that could potentially be used to crash the Razor program,
causing a denial of service (DOS). 

For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.670-1sarge2. 

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this issue.

We recommend that you upgrade your razor package.
