This bug was experienced in May 1999 but wasn't reported on this
channel yet.

Former versions of the smtp-refuser package came with unchecked
logging facility to /tmp/log.  This allowed deleting arbitrary,
root-owned files by any user who has write access to /tmp.

We recommend you upgrade your smtp-refuser package.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
