Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA706] DSA-706-1 axel

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-706-1 axel

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
buffer overflow in axel, a light download accelerator. When reading
remote input the program did not check if a part of the input can
overflow a buffer and maybe trigger the execution of arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0a-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0b-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your axel package.
