    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-6562
    
    It was discovered that several buffer overflows in tcpreen, a tool for
    monitoring a TCP connection may lead to denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.3-0.1etch1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain tcpreen.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.3-0.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tcpreen package.
