Debian Security Advisory DSA-104-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman January 14, 2002

Package : cipe Problem type : DoS attack Debian-specific: no

Larry McVoy found a bug in the packet handling code for the CIPE VPN package: it did not check if a received packet was too short and could crash.

This has been fixed in version 1.3.0-3, and we recommend that you upgrade your cipe packages immediately.

Please note that the package only contains the needed kernel patch, you will have to build the kernel modules for your kernel with the updated source from the cipe-source package.

wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato

Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
