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.
