Two vulnerabilities were discovered the distributed filesystem AFS:
Andrew Deason discovered that a double free in the Rx server process could lead to denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
It was discovered that insufficient error handling in the kernel module could lead to denial of service.
For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.7.dfsg1-6+lenny4. Due to a technical problem with the buildd infrastructure the update is not yet available, but will be installed into the archive soon.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 184.108.40.206+dfsg-4.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.14+dfsg-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your openafs packages. Note that in order to apply this security update, you must rebuild the OpenAFS kernel module.
