    The logging code in nfs-utils contains an off-by-one buffer overrun
    when adding a newline to the string being logged.  This vulnerability
    may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
    service condition by sending certain RPC requests.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.0-2woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:1.0.3-2.
    
    We recommend that you update your nfs-utils package.
