    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.
