    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0892
    Debian Bug     : 301428
    
    A buffer overflow has been discovered in Smail, an electronic mail
    transport system, which allows remote attackers and local users to
    execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.0.114-4woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.2.0.115-7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smail package.
