    Package        : cpio
    Vulnerability  : broken file permissions
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-1999-1572
    It has been discovered, that cpio, a program to manage archives of
    files, creates output files with -O and -F with broken permissions due
    to a reset zero umask which allows local users to read or overwrite
    those files.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.4.2-39woody1
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your cpio package.
    Upgrade Instructions

    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
