Package: libpam-smb
Vulnerability: remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

libpam-smb contains a buffer overflow that can be used to execute
arbitrary commands with root privilege. libpam-smb was not shipped with
Debian 2.1 (slink), but was included in Debian 2.2 (potato).

A fixed version of libpam-smb is available in version 1.1.6-1 for Debian
2.2 (potato). We recommend upgrading your libpam-smb 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 2.1 alias slink
- ------------------------------------

  Debian 2.1 did not include libpam-smb.


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

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
  architectures. At this moment packages  for m68k are not yet
  available. As soon as they are ready we will put them online and
  list them on the security pages at  https://security.debian.org/.
