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.
