Debian Security Advisory DSA 697-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : netkit-telnet
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0469

iDEFENSE researchers discovered a buffer overflow in the handling of
the LINEMODE suboptions in telnet clients.  This can lead to the
execution of arbitrary code when connected to a malicious server.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17-18woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your telnet 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.
