    Package: sudo
    Vulnerability: buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Todd Miller announced a new version of sudo which corrects a buffer
    overflow that could potentially be used to gain root privilages on the
    local system. The fix from sudo 1.6.3p6 is available in sudo
    1.6.2p2-1potato1 for Debian 2.2 (potato).
    
    We recommend you upgrade your sudo package 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.
