    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0456
    
    Ulf Härnhammar discovered a vulnerability in pavuk, a file retrieval
    program, whereby an oversized HTTP 305 response sent by a malicious
    server could cause arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges
    of the pavuk process.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.9pl28-1woody1.
    
    pavuk is no longer included in the unstable distribution of Debian.
    
    We recommend that you update your pavuk package.
