The nis package that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a
couple of problems:
* ypserv allowed any machine in the NIS domain to insert new tables
* rpc.yppasswd had a bufferoverflow in its MD5 code
* rpc.yppasswd allowed users to change the GECOS and loginshell entries
  of other users

This has been fixed in version 3.5-2. We recommend you upgrade your nis
package immediately.

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