Alexandre Martani discovered that the APT daily cron script did not check
the return code of the date command. If a machine is configured for
automatic updates and is in a time zone where DST occurs at midnight, under
certain circumstances automatic updates might not be applied and could
become permanently disabled. (CVE-2009-1300)

Michael Casadevall discovered that APT did not properly verify repositories
signed with a revoked or expired key. If a repository were signed with only
an expired or revoked key and the signature was otherwise valid, APT would
consider the repository valid. (<https://launchpad.net/bugs/356012>)
