Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Debian We have received reports that the version of mirror as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 could be remotely exploited. When mirroring a remote site the remote site could use filename-constructions like " .." that would case mirror to work one level above the target directory for the mirrored files.

We have received reports that the version of mirror as distributed in
Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 could be remotely exploited. When mirroring a
remote site the remote site could use filename-constructions like " .."
that would case mirror to work one level above the target directory for
the mirrored files.

This has been fixed in mirror version 2.9-2.1 .

We recommend you upgrade your mirror package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  This version of Debian was released only for Intel, the Motorola
  680x0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
