From the Debian security mailing list, Wichert Akkerman writes:

We have received reports that junkbuster had a couple buffer overflow
vulnerabilities.  We fixed those in version 2.0-3.2. All later version
are also not vulnerable. The patches were backported from 2.0.2 .

We recommend you upgrade your junkbuster package immediately.
