The vulnerability was a stack-based buffer overflow, which could be triggered by a remote attacker sending a carefully crafted mail. It was introduced by a Debian-specific patch, and the software looks dead upstream, so we issued CVE-2014-0469 from our pool. The fix is only available in unstable  now, but stable and oldstable should follow soon. : http://packages.qa.debian.org/x/xbuffy/news/20140427T181904Z.html Regards, -- Yves-Alexis Perez Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (491 bytes)
