CVE-2008-2363
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  pan                             0.132-2ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Pavel Polischouk discovered that Pan incorrectly handled certain data
structures. If a user were tricked into viewing malicious nntp data, a
remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
