    Vulnerability  : uucp uid/gid access
    Problem-Type   : local exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    zen-parse has found a problem with Taylor UUCP as distributed with
    many GNU/Linux distributions.  It was possible to make `uux' execute
    `uucp' with malicious commandline arguments which gives an attacker
    access to files owned by uid/gid uucp.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version of 1.06.1-11potato1 for Debian
    GNU/Linux 2.2 by using a patch that Red Hat has provided.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your uucp package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
