--- Changes for krb5 (libkrb53) ---
krb5 (1.3.6-2sarge4) stable-security; urgency=emergency

  * MIT-SA-2007-1: telnet allows  login as an arbitrary user when
    presented with a specially crafted username; CVE-2007-0956 
  * krb5_klog_syslog has a trivial buffer overflow that can be exploited
    by network data; CVE-2007-0957.  The upstream patch is very intrusive
    because it fixes each call to syslog to have proper length checking as
    well as the actual krb5_klog_syslog internals to use vsnprintf rather
    than vsprintf.  I have chosen to only include the change to
    krb5_klog_syslog for sarge.  This is sufficient to fix the problem but
    is much smaller and less intrusive.   (MIT-SA-2007-2)
  * MIT-SA-2007-3: The GSS-API library can cause a double free if
    applications treat certain errors decoding a message as errors that
    require freeing the output buffer.  At least the gssapi rpc library
    does this, so kadmind is vulnerable.    Fix the gssapi library because
    the spec allows applications to treat errors this way.  CVE-2007-1216

clamav (0.90-0volatile2) sarge-volatile; urgency=low

  * Fix clamav.examples to actually include what's there, and not what include

--- Changes for file (file libmagic1) ---
file (4.12-1sarge1) stable-security; urgency=high
