    Package        : tinyproxy
    Vulnerability  : doubly freed memory
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Bugtraq Id     : 4731
    
    The authors of tinyproxy, a lightweight HTTP proxy, discovered a bug
    in the handling of some invalid proxy requests.  Under some
    circumstances, an invalid request may result in a allocated memory
    being freed twice.  This can potentially result in the execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.4.3-2woody2 for the current
    stable distribution (woody) and in version 1.4.3-3 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
    affected by this problem.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tinyproxy 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.
