Package        : smstools
Vulnerability  : format string attack
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0083

Ulf Harnhammar from the Debian Security Audit project discovered a
format string attack in the logging code of smstools, which may be
exploited to execute arbitary code with root privileges.

The original advisory for this issue said that the old stable
distribution (woody) was not affected because it did not contain
smstools. This was incorrect, and the only change in this updated
advisory is the inclusion of corrected packages for woody.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.0-2woody0.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.14.8-1sarge0.

For the unstable distribution the package will be updated shortly.

We recommend that you upgrade your smstools package.

- --------------------

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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
