As is widely known by now the Linux 2.2.x kernels had a problem with
parsing IP options, which made them susceptible to a DoS attack. 

The Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 release for the Sun sparc architecture uses such
a kernel. If you are using such a system and haven't upgraded the
kernel yourself, we recommend that you upgrade your kernel-image package
immediately.  If you have a sun4u system please use kernel-image-2.2.9-sun4u,
otherwise use the normal kernel-image-2.2.9 package.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
