project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2006-2662

Drew Yao discovered that multiple integer overflows in the string
processing code may lead to denial of service and potentially the
execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2663

Drew Yao discovered that multiple integer overflows in the string
processing code may lead to denial of service and potentially the
execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2664

Drew Yao discovered that a programming error in the string
processing code may lead to denial of service and potentially the
execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2725

Drew Yao discovered that an integer overflow in the array handling
code may lead to denial of service and potentially the execution
of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2726

Drew Yao discovered that an integer overflow in the array handling
code may lead to denial of service and potentially the execution
of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2376

It was discovered that an integer overflow in the array handling
code may lead to denial of service and potentially the execution
of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.5-4etch2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.7.22-2.
