    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.
