tag_insight = "Mike Wiacek discovered that a buffer overflow in the ARC2 implementation
of Python Crypto, a collection of cryptographic algorithms and protocols
for Python allows denial of service and potentially the execution of
arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.1+dfsg1-2.3+lenny0.

Due to a technical limitation in the Debian archive management scripts
the update for the old stable distribution (etch) cannot be released
synchronously. It will be fixed in version 2.0.1+dfsg1-1.2+etch0 soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-crypto package.";
