    It has been reported that one can tweak man2html remotely into
    consuming all available memory.  This has been fixed by Nicolás
    Lichtmaier with help of Stephan Kulow.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your man2html 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
