Package: mped
Version: 3.3.17-1
Severity: critical
Tags: lenny

(Note: I'm upstream author for the mped package).

Lenny has been released containing a version of the Minimum Profit text
editor that is from 2005 and that can cause severe information lossage due
to an incorrect handling of UTF-8 encoding.

An RC bug was filed (#514096) against lenny to suggest a package update or
deletion, but it was ignored and this dangerous version entered the stable

As there is nothing that can be done by now, I urge the archive masters to
delete this +4 year old, dangerous package.

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

      mped |   3.3.17-1 | m68k
      mped |    5.1.1-1 | source, alpha, amd64, armel, hppa, hurd-i386, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive (ftp-master.debian.org) and will not propagate to any
mirrors (ftp.debian.org included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are never removed from testing by hand.  Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to 515563@bugs.debian.org.
