    Package        : rssh
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1320
    Debian Bug     : 346322
    
    Russ Allbery discovered that rssh, a restricted shell, performs
    insufficient checking of incoming commands, which might lead to a bypass
    of access restrictions.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.3-1.sarge.2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.0-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your rssh package.
