Package        : abc2ps
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1513

Erik Sj�lund discovered that abc2ps, a translator for ABC music
description files into PostScript, does not check the boundaries when
reading in ABC music files resulting in buffer overflows.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.3-2woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.3-3sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.3.3-3sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your abc2ps package.
