Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-5873

Rhys Kidd discovered a vulnerability in l2tpns, a layer 2 tunnelling
protocol network server, which could be triggered by a remote user to
execute arbitary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in 
version 2.0.14-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.21-1

We recommend that you upgrade your l2tpns package.
