    We have received a report that the all versions of cfingerd prior to
    1.4.0 and 1.3.2-18.1 are vulnerable to a root exploit - as posted on
    bugtraq.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your cfingerd package immediately or disable
    ALLOW_EXECUTION.  The latter is turned off in the default Debian
    configuration.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
