    Package        : traceroute-nanog
    Vulnerability  : integer overflow, buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0453
    traceroute-nanog, an enhanced version of the common traceroute
    program, contains an integer overflow bug which could be exploited to
    execute arbitrary code.  traceroute-nanog is setuid root, but drops
    root privileges immediately after obtaining raw ICMP and raw IP
    sockets.  Thus, exploitation of this bug provides only access to these
    sockets, and not root privileges.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.1.1-1.3.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    See Debian bug #200875.
    We recommend that you update your traceroute-nanog package.
