Package        : turqstat
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2658

Peter Karlsson discovered a buffer overflow in Turquoise SuperStat, a
program for gathering statistics from Fidonet and Usenet, that can be
exploited by a specially crafted NNTP server.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your turqstat package.
