Package : sup 
Vulnerability : format string 
Problem-Type : remote 
Debian-specific: no 
CVE Ids : CAN-2004-0451 discovered a format string vulnerability in 
sup, a set of programs to synchronize collections of files across a 
number of machines, whereby a remote attacker could potentially cause 
arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges of the supfilesrv 
process (this process does not run automatically by default). 

CAN-2004-0451: format string vulnerabilities in sup via syslog(3) in 
logquit, logerr, loginfo functions 

For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been 
fixed in version 1.8-8woody2. 

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon. 

We recommend that you update your sup package.
