Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Marcus Meissner discovered that kaffeine, a versatile media player for
KDE 3, contains an unchecked buffer that can be overwritten remotely
when fetching remote RAM playlists which can cause the execution of
arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain kaffeine packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your kaffeine package.
