    The version of amd that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 is
    vulnerable to a remote exploit. This was fixed in version 23.0slink1.
    However that fix contained an error which has been fixed in version
    upl102-23.slink2.
    
    Here is the problem description from the previous fix:
      Passing a big directory name to amd its logging code would overflow a
      buffer which could be exploited. This has been fixed in version
      23.0slink1.
    
    We recommand that you upgrade your amd package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
