    Package        : mgetty
    Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile creation
    Debian-specific: no
    
    In Debian Security Advisory DSA 011-1 we have reported insecure
    creation of temporary files in the mgetty package that have been
    fixed.  For details please read the main advisory.
    
    The most recent advisory covering proftpd missed two architectures that
    were released with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.  Therefore this advisory is
    only an addition to DSA 011-1 and only adds the relevant package for
    the Motorola 680x0 and PowerPC architecture.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for m68k 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.
