Debian Security Advisory DSA 845-1                                        Martin Schulze
October 6th, 2005

Package        : mason
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3118
Debian Bug     : 222384

Christoph Martin noticed that upon configuration mason, which
interactively creates a Linux packet filtering firewall, does not
install the init script to actually load the firewall during system
boot.  This will leave the machine without a firewall after a reboot.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0-2.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mason package.

        will fetch the file for you
