Something is odd with the MITRE CVE: According to http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2011-4062 the bug is in the Linux emulation code. However the bug is really in the bind(2) system call. There was a different bug in the emulation code exposed by fixing the bind vulnerability but the system is vulnerable even without linux emulation turned on. Additionally Debian appears to have copied the incorrect data from the MITRE cve (http://www.debian.org/security/2011/dsa-2325)/ -- Eitan Adler Ports committer X11, Bugbusting teams
