    Package        : jazip
    Vulnerability  : local root exploit and buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    
    With older versions of jazip a user could gain root access for members
    of the floppy group to the local machine.  The interface doesn't run
    as root anymore and this very exploit was prevented.  The program now
    also truncates DISPLAY to 256 characters if it is bigger, which closes
    the buffer overflow (within xforms).
    
    We recommend you upgrade your jazip 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.  This package was not available for arm and powerpc,
      now a fixed powerpc version is available while there is still no arm
      version.
