yes. a security alert has been issued.
simple to patch:)
"You can use apt to easily get the latest security updates. This
requires a line such as :
deb http://security.debian.org/ woody/updates main contrib non-free 
in your /etc/apt/sources.list file."

I did it last night - simply apt-get update;apt-get-upgrade
ps try the security.debian.org mailing list for regular updates and
security alerts.
