Debian: New netatalk packages fix arbitrary code execution

It was discovered that netatalk, an implementation of the AppleTalk suite, is affected by a command injection vulnerability when processing PostScript streams via papd. This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Please note that this only affects installations that are configured to use a pipe command in combination with wildcard symbols substituted with values of the printed job. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
