    Package        : smb2www
    Vulnerability  : arbitrary command execution
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Robert Luberda found a security problem in smb2www, a Windows Network
    client that is accessible through a web browser.  This could lead a
    remote attacker to execute arbitrary programs under the user id
    www-data on the host where smb2www is running.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 980804-16.1 for the current
    stable distribution (woody), in version 980804-8.1 of the old stable
    distribution (potato) and in version 980804-17 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your smb2www package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
