  Anthony de Almeida Lopes of Outpost24 AB reported a denial of service flaw
  in the acpid daemon's error handling. If an attacker could exhaust the
  sockets open to acpid, the daemon would enter an infinite loop, consuming
  most CPU resources and preventing acpid from communicating with legitimate
  processes. (CVE-2009-0798)
  
  Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
