    The version of lpr that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 suffers from a couple of problems: * there was a race in lpr that could be exploited by users to print files they can not normally read * lpd did not check permissions of queue-files. As a result by using the -s flag it could be tricked into printing files a user can otherwise not read

    The version of lpr that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
    suffers from a couple of problems:
    * there was a race in lpr that could be exploited by users to print files they
      can not normally read
    * lpd did not check permissions of queue-files. As a result by using the -s
      flag it could be tricked into printing files a user can otherwise not read
    
    This has been fixed in version 0.46-1-0slink1. We recommend you upgrade
    your lpr package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
