Multiple buffer overflows involving HTTP header and playlist parsing
have been discovered in streamripper (CVE-2007-4337, CVE-2008-4829).

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.61.27-1+etch1.

(lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 1.63.5-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your streamripper package.
