Malcolm Scott discovered a remote-exploitable buffer overflow in the

vulnerability was introduced in a previously applied patch to the
cfingerd package in 1.4.3-3.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.3-3+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
