Package        : sash
Vulnerability  : broken maintainer script
Debian-specific: yes

Versions of sash prior to 3.4-4 did not clone /etc/shadow properly
which lead into readable files for anybody.  This was fixed by the
Debian maintainer.

This package only exists in stable, so if you are running unstable you
won't see a bugfix unless you use the resources from the bottom of
this message to the proper configuration.

We recommend you upgrade your sash package 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.
