    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  http://security.debian.org/.
