The version of amd that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 is
vulnerable to a remote exploit. This was fixed in version 23.0slink1.
However that fix contained an error which has been fixed in version
upl102-23.slink2.

Here is the problem description from the previous fix:
  Passing a big directory name to amd its logging code would overflow a
  buffer which could be exploited. This has been fixed in version
  23.0slink1.

We recommand that you upgrade your amd package immediately.

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