    We have received reports that the netstd suffered from two buffer overflows. The first problem is an exploitable buffer overflow in the bootp server. The second problem is an overflow in the FTP client. Both problems are fixed in a new netstd package, version 3.07-2hamm.4 .

    We recommend you upgrade your netstd package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
