Debian Security Advisory DSA 1122-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : libnet-server-perl
Vulnerability : format string
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-1127
Debian Bug : 378640

Peter Bieringer discovered that the "log" function in the Net::Server
Perl module, an extensible, general perl server engine, is not safe
against format string exploits.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.87-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.89-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libnet-server-perl package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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