    Debian Bug     : 332424
    
    Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
    format string vulnerability in weex, a non-interactive FTP client for
    updating web pages, that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code
    on the clients machine.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.1-4woody2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.1-6sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
