Package        : metamail
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0709
BugTraq ID     : 16611
Debian Bug     : 352482

Ulf Harnhammar discoverd a buffer overflow in metamail, an
implementation of MIME (Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions), that
could lead to a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary
code when processing messages.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7-45woody.4.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7-47sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7-51.

We recommend that you upgrade your metamail package.

- --------------------

        will fetch the file for you

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
