Package        : libjakarta-poi-java
Vulnerability  : unbounded memory allocation
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-0213

It was discovered that Apache POI, a Java implementation of the
Microsoft Office file formats, would allocate arbitrary amounts of
memory when processing crafted documents.  This could impact the
stability of the Java virtual machine.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6+dfsg-1+squeeze1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libjakarta-poi-java packages.
