    It was discovered that the regex module in Smarty, a PHP templating engine,
    allows attackers to call arbitrary PHP functions via templates using the
    regex_replace plugin by a specially crafted search string.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    2.6.14-1etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.9-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version

    We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.
