    Package        : simpleproxy
    Vulnerability  : format string vulnerability
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1857
    
    Ulf Harnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discoverd a
    format string vulnerability in simpleproxy, a simple TCP proxy, that
    can be exploited via replies from remote HTTP proxies.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your simpleproxy package.
