    Two buffer overflows have been discovered in purity, a game for nerds
    and hackers, which is installed setgid games on a Debian system.  This
    problem could be exploited to gain unauthorized access to the group
    games.  A malicious user could alter the highscore of several games.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 1-14.2 for the current stable
    distribution (woody), in version 1-9.1 for the old stable distribution
    (potato) and in version 1-16 for the unstable distribution (sid).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your purity packages.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
