Debian Security Advisory DSA 906-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : sylpheed
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3354
Debian Bug     : 338436

Colin Leroy discovered several buffer overflows in a number of
importer routines in sylpheed, a light-weight e-mail client with GTK+,
that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

The following matrix explains which versions fix this vulnerability

                     old stable (woody)   stable (sarge)  unstable (sid)
sylpheed               0.7.4-4woody1      1.0.4-1sarge1      2.0.4-1
sylpheed-gtk1              n/a                 n/a           1.0.6-1
sylpheed-claws       0.7.4claws-3woody1   1.0.4-1sarge1      1.0.5-2
sylpheed-claws-gtk2        n/a                 n/a          1.9.100-1

We recommend that you upgrade your sylpheed package.
