Debian Security Advisory                             security () debian org

Package: glibc
Vulnerability: local exploit
Debian-specific: no

Recently two problems have been found in the glibc suite, which could be
used to trick setuid applications to run arbitrary code.

An earlier advisory listed the updates for Debian 2.2/potato. This
advisory contains updates for Debian 2.1/slink. For information
about the found problems please see the previous advisory which is
available online at http://www.debian.org/security/2000/20000902 .

UPDATE: the packages mentioned in the previous problem had a bug
that prevented some patches from being applied. This has been
fixed in version 2.0.7.19981211-6.3 .

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- ------------------------------------

  Fixed packages are available for the Intel ia32 architecture.
