Package : lua5.1

functions with many fixed parameters called with few arguments,
leading to application crashes or, potentially, arbitrary code
execution.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.1.5-4+deb7u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.1.5-7.
