    Package        : glibc
    Problem type   : local file overwrite
    Debian-specific: no
    The version of GNU libc that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
    suffered from 2 security problems:
    * It was possible to use LD_PRELOAD to load libraries that are listed in
      /etc/, even for suid programs. This could be used to create
      (and overwrite) files which a user should not be allowed to.
    * by using LD_PROFILE suid programs would write data to a file
      to /var/tmp, which was not done safely. Again, this could be  used
      to create (and overwrite) files which a user should not have access
    Both problems have been fixed in version 2.1.3-17 and we recommend that
    you upgrade your glibc packages immediately.
    Please note that a side-effect of this upgrade is that ldd will no longer
    work on suid programs, unless you logged in as root.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
