Vulnerability  : buffer overflow, insecure tempfile handling,

Several people have noted a number of problems in several components
of the X Window System sample implementation (from which XFree86 is
derived).  Please read DSA 030-1 for a detailed description.

We recommend you upgrade your XFree86 packages immediately.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
  architectures.  This advisory only covers m68k which was missing in
  DSA 030-1 due to the slowliness of our m68k build box.
