New version of lsof for Debian GNU/Linux

Feb 26, 1999, 15:35 (0 Talkback[s])

Recently, a security problem was foud in the lsof package. Debian has issued an update for their users.


We have received reports that the lsof package is distributed in
Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 contains a buffer overflow. Using this overflow
it is possible for local users to gain root-access. We have fixed
this problem in version 4.37-3.

We recommend you upgrade your lsof package immediately.

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