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.

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
  architectures.
