Package        : auth2db
Vulnerability  : SQL injection
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : no CVE id yet
Debian Bug     : 521823

It was discovered that auth2db, an IDS logger, log viewer and alert
generator, is prone to an SQL injection vulnerability, when used with
multibyte character encodings.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.5-2+dfsg-1+lenny1.

The oldstable distribution (etch) doesn't contain auth2db.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2.5-2+dfsg-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your auth2db packages.
