Package        : id3lib3.8.3
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-4460
Debian Bug     : 438540

Nikolaus Schulz discovered that a programming error in id3lib, an ID3 Tag
Library, may lead to denial of service through symlink attacks.

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.3-4.1sarge1.

Due to a technical limitation in the archive management scripts the fix
for the stable distribution (etch) can only be released in a few days.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.3-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your id3lib3.8.3 packages.
