Vulnerability : format string vulnerability
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no

Debian Bug : 332424

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
format string vulnerability in weex, a non-interactive FTP client for
updating web pages, that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code
on the clients machine.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.1-4woody2.

We recommend that you upgrade your weex package.
