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.
