Debian Security Advisory DSA 834-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

Package        : prozilla
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2961

Tavis Ormandy discovered a buffer overflow in prozilla, a
multi-threaded download accelerator, which may be exploited to execute
arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3.6-3woody3.

The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain prozilla packages.

The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain prozilla packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your prozilla 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.
