    Package        : ntop
    Problem type   : remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The updated version of ntop (1.2a7-10) that was released on August 5
    was found to still be insecure: it was still exploitable using buffer
    overflows. Using this technique it was possible to run arbitrary code
    as the user who ran ntop in web mode.
    
    In order to permantly fix these problems an updated package has
    been released that disables web mode completely. The version of
    this fix is 1.2a7-11.
    
    We recommend you upgrade or remove your ntop package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
