Package: uucp
Vulnerability: remote dos
Debian-specific: yes

We have received reports that in.uucpd, an authentication agent in the
uucp package, does not properly terminate certain long input strings.
This has been corrected in uucp package version 1.06.1-11potato3 for
Debian 2.2 (potato) and in version 1.06.1-18 for the upcoming (woody)

We recommend you upgrade your uucp package immediately.

wget url
	will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
