Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"bazarr" discovered that eterm is vulnerable to a buffer overflow of
the ETERMPATH environment variable. This bug can be exploited to gain

installed.
For the stable distribution (woody), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.2-0pre2002042903.1.
The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by this bug.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your eterm package.
