1. Problem Description

        Several security bugs were discovered in the rpc.ttdbserverd
        program that allow an attacker to overwrite memory in the
        program as well as force the program to create and delete

        are remotely exploitable.

        This update adds a fix for an additional vulnerability: a
        buffer overflow described by CERT CA-2002-26.
