Debian GNU/Linux Advisories: man-db, xtokkaetama, xpcd

Debian Security Advisory DSA 364-2 security@debian.org

Package : man-db

The previous man-db update (DSA-364-1) introduced an error which resulted in a segmentation fault in the "mandb" command, which runs part of the daily cron job. This error was caused by allocating a memory region which was one byte too small to hold the data written into it.

For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed in version 2.3.20-18.woody.3.

The unstable distribution (sid) was not affected by this problem.

We recommend that you update your man-db package.
