    We have received reports that the lsof package is distributed in
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 contains a buffer overflow. Using this overflow
    it is possible for local users to gain root-access. We have fixed
    this problem in version 4.37-3.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your lsof package immediately.
    
    wget url
    	will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
