    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.
