    The version of dump that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
    suffers from a problem with restoring symbolic links. 
    
    This has been fixed in version 0.4b9-0slink1. We recommend you upgrade
    your dump package immediately.
    
    This version "Uses lchown instead of chown, fixing a possible security
     problem when restoring symlinks (a malicious user could use this to
     deliberately corrupt the ownership of important system files)".
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
