Package: sysklogd
Vulnerability: root exploit
Debian-specific: no

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in syslogd and klogd. A
local root exploit is possible, and remote exploits may be possible in
some cases (though we are not currently aware of a remote exploit.)

Fixed packages are available in version 1.3-31.slink1 for Debian 2.1
(slink) and version 1.3-33.1 for Debian 2.2 (potato). We recommend
upgrading your sysklogd 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)
- ----------------------------------
  
  We are releasing slink packages for i386 at this time. m68k packages
  will be available at  http://security.debian.org/
