Package        : queue
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0555

"jaguar" of the Debian Security Audit Project has discovered several
buffer overflows in queue, a transparent load balancing system.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.30.1-4woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.30.1-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your queue 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.
