Debian Security Advisory DSA 738-1                                     Michael Stone

Package        : razor
Vulnerability  : email header parsing error
Problem type   : remote DOS
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-2024

A vulnerability was discovered in the way that Razor parses certain
email headers that could potentially be used to crash the Razor program,
causing a denial of service (DOS). 

For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.670-1sarge2. 

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this issue.

We recommend that you upgrade your razor 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.
