    The version of nfs-server that was distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 had a buffer overflow in fh_buildpath(). It assumed that the total length of a path would never exceed (PATH_MAX_NAME_MAX). With a read/write exported directory people could created longes path and cause a bufferoverflow.

    This has been addressed in version 2.2beta37-1slink.1, and we recommend you
    upgrade your nfs-server package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
