Package : mason Vulnerability : programming error Problem type : remote Debian-specific: yes CVE ID : CAN-2005-3118 Debian Bug : 222384

Christoph Martin noticed that upon configuration mason, which interactively creates a Linux packet filtering firewall, does not install the init script to actually load the firewall during system boot. This will leave the machine without a firewall after a reboot.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.0-2.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.0-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mason package.
