Description

Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the dpkg-deb component of dpkg, the Debian package management system. This flaw could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution if a user or an automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted Debian binary package (.deb) in the old style Debian binary package format.

This update also includes updated translations and additional bug fixes.
