Package        : libconvert-uulib-perl
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1349

Mark Martinec and Robert Lewis discovered a buffer overflow in
Convert::UUlib, a Perl interface to the uulib library, which may
result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.201-2woody1.

For the testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distributions this problem
has been fixed in version 1.0.5.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libconvert-uulib-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.
