    Package        : noffle
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0037
    
    Dan Jacobson noticed a problem in noffle, an offline news server, that
    leads to a segmentation fault.  It is not yet clear whether this
    problem is exploitable.  However, if it is, a remote attacker could
    trigger arbitrary code execution under the user that calls noffle,
    probably news.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.1-1.1.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a noffle
    package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your noffle package.
