Package        : prozilla
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1120
BugTraq ID     : 11734

Several buffer overflows have been discovered in prozilla, a
multi-threaded download accelerator which could be exploited by a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine.  An
exploit for prozilla is already in the wild.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.6-3woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.7.3-1

We recommend that you upgrade your prozilla package.

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

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.
