Package        : cabextract
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-2801

It was discovered that a programming error in the archive test mode of 
cabextract, a program to extract Microsoft Cabinet files, could lead to
the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in 
version 1.2-3+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your cabextract package.
