Package        : fail2ban
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-4321

Daniel B. Cid discovered that fail2ban, a tool to block IP addresses
that cause login failures, is too liberal about parsing SSH log files,
allowing an attacker to block any IP address.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.0-4.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.5-2etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain fail2ban.

We recommend that you upgrade your fail2ban package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian 4.0 (stable)
