Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no

Debian Bug     : 585791

The update for PCSCD caused a regression with some card readers. This
update corrects that regression. The full advisory is below for completeness.

It was discovered that PCSCD, a daemon to access smart cards, was vulnerable
to a buffer overflow allowing a local attacker to elevate his privileges
to root.
