Debian Security Advisory DSA-014-2                       security () debian org

Package        : splitvt
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow and format string attack
Debian-specific: no

This advisory is only a corrected security advisory for DSA 014-1
since I wasn't careful enough last night and files from an older
advisory back from June 2000 slipped through.  To keep confusion to a
minimum this advisory contains all relevant URLs - and only these.

It was reported recently that splitvt is vulnerable to numerous buffer
overflow attack and a format string attack.  An attacker was able to
gain access to the tty group.

We recommend you upgrade your splitvt 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.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ------------------------------------

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
  architectures.
