[DSA762] DSA-762-1 affix Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-762-1 affix

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Kevin Finisterre discovered two problems in the Bluetooth FTP client
from affix, user space utilities for the Affix Bluetooth protocol
stack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following vulnerabilities:
A buffer overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a long filename in an OBEX file share.
Missing input sanitising before executing shell commands allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary commands as root.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.1-2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.2-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your affix package.
