An unfixed buffer overflow has been discovered by Andrew V. Samoilov in mc, the midnight commander, a file browser and manager. This update also fixes a regression from DSA 497.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 4.5.55-1.2woody6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has already been fixed.

We recommend that you upgrade your mc packages.
