    We have received reports that the version of the imap suite
    in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a vulnerability in its POP-2 daemon,
    which can be found in the ipopd package. Using this vulnerability
    it is possible for remote users to get a shell as user "nobody"
    on the server.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your ipopd package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
