Package        : python-cjson
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2010-1666
Debian Bug     : 587700

Matt Giuca discovered a buffer overflow in python-cjson, a fast JSON
encoder/decoder for Python.
This allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash)
through a specially-crafted Python script.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.5-1+lenny1

For the testing (squeeze) and the unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
has been fixed in version 1.0.5-3

We recommend that you upgrade your python-cjson 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.
