Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Erik Sjölund discovered that a support script of sympa, a mailing list
manager, is running setuid sympa and vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
This could potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code under
the sympa user id.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.3-3woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your sympa package.
