Debian: New teapop packages fix SQL injection

teapop, a POP-3 server, includes modules for authenticating users against a PostgreSQL or MySQL database. These modules do not properly escape user-supplied strings before using them in SQL queries. This vulnerability could be exploited to execute arbitrary SQL under the privileges of the database user as which teapop has authenticated. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
