Package : prozilla
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2961

Tavis Ormandy discovered a buffer overflow in prozilla, a
multi-threaded download accelerator, which may be exploited to execute
arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.6-3woody3.

The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain prozilla packages.

The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain prozilla packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your prozilla package.
