    Package        : splitvt
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow and format string attack
    Debian-specific: no
    This advisory is only a corrected security advisory for DSA 014-1
    since I wasn't careful enough last night and files from an older
    advisory back from June 2000 slipped through.  To keep confusion to a
    minimum this advisory contains all relevant URLs - and only these.
    It was reported recently that splitvt is vulnerable to numerous buffer
    overflow attack and a format string attack.  An attacker was able to
    gain access to the tty group.
    We recommend you upgrade your splitvt package immediately.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
