Package: libpam-smb
Vulnerability: remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

libpam-smb contains a buffer overflow that can be used to execute
arbitrary commands with root privilege. libpam-smb was not shipped with
Debian 2.1 (slink), but was included in Debian 2.2 (potato).

A fixed version of libpam-smb is available in version 1.1.6-1 for Debian
2.2 (potato). We recommend upgrading your libpam-smb immediately.

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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
