Package        : canna
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no
The canna package as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 can be remotely exploited to gain access. This could be done by overflowing a buffer by sending a SR_INIT command with a very long usernamd or groupname.

This has been fixed in version 3.5b2-24slink1, and recommend that you upgrade your canna package immediately.

wget url
