It also affects Feisty & Gusty:

Turns out that upstream's fix for CVE-2007-4572 was incomplete and
Feisty and Gutsy are also affected. As such, feisty and gutsy packages
have been disabled. I have also linked to the upstream bug report.
Updated packages without this patch will be provided for all releases.
CVE-2007-4572 is a DoS but believed to not be exploitable.

When a proper fix is found, updated packages will be provided.

However, turning on my Gutsy machines as of a few minutes ago shows the
updates as being available. I've not tried updating yet; should we
disable those updates for the time being? And, if they were pulled, why
are they still showing up in update manager?
