Debian Security Advisory DSA-1957-1 security@debian.org

Package : aria2
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2009-3575
Debian Bug : 551070

It was discovered that aria2, a high speed download utility, is prone
to a buffer overflow in the DHT routing code, which might lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.14.0-1+lenny1. Binaries for powerpc, arm, ia64 and hppa will
be provided once they are available.

The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.0-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your aria2 packages.
