    Package: splitvt
    Vulnerability: local root exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    This is an update to the previous splitvt advisory. The previous release
    had incorrrect addresses for the updates for Debian GNU/Linux potato.
    
    
    The version of splitvt distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (a.k.a. slink),
    as well as in the frozen (potato) and unstable (woody) distributions, is
    vulnerable to a local buffer overflow.  This could be exploited to give a
    shell running as root.
    
    This has been fixed in versions 1.6.3-7.0slink1 and 1.6.3-7.1, and we
    recommend that you update your splitvt package immediately.
