Package        : cipe
Problem type   : DoS attack
Debian-specific: no

Larry McVoy found a bug in the packet handling code for the CIPE
VPN package: it did not check if a received packet was too short
and could crash.

This has been fixed in version 1.3.0-3, and we recommend that you
upgrade your cipe packages immediately.

Please note that the package only contains the needed kernel patch,
you will have to build the kernel modules for your kernel with the
updated source from the cipe-source package.

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


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
---------------------------------
