This may allow attackers to gain read access to otherwise protected
ressources, depending on how the library is used.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.37-1+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
(sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.39-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxml-atom-perl packages.";
