    Package        : xinetd
    Problem type   : change default umask
                     buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    zen-parse reported on bugtraq that there is a possible buffer overflow
    in the logging code from xinetd. This could be triggered by using a
    fake identd that returns special replies when xinetd does an ident
    Another problem is that xinetd sets it umask to 0. As a result any
    programs that xinetd start that are not careful with file permissions
    will create world-writable files.
    Both problems have been fixed in version .
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
