Package        : tor
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2011-2768 CVE-2011-2769 

It has been discovered by "frosty_un" that a design flaw in Tor, an online
privacy tool, allows malicious relay servers to learn certain information
that they should not be able to learn. Specifically, a relay that a user
connects to directly could learn which other relays that user is 
connected to directly. In combination with other attacks, this issue 
can lead to deanonymizing the user.  The Common Vulnerabilities and 
Exposures project has assigned CVE-2011-2768 to this issue.

In addition to fixing the above mentioned issues, the updates to oldstable
and stable fix a number of less critical issues (CVE-2011-2769). Please 
see this posting from the Tor blog for more information:
