Debian Updated package.
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 1204-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                         Moritz Muehlenhoff
November 2nd, 2006                      http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : ingo1
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5449
Debian Bug     : 396099

It was discovered that the Ingo email filter rules manager performs 
insufficient escaping of user-provided data in created procmail rules
files, which allows the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ingo1 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.
