    Package        : sympa
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0073
    Erik Sjölund discovered that a support script of sympa, a mailing list
    manager, is running setuid sympa and vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
    This could potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code under
    the sympa user id.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.3.3-3woody2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your sympa package.
