Package: sysklogd
Vulnerability: root exploit
Debian-specific: no
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in syslogd and klogd. A local root exploit is possible, and remote exploits may be possible in some cases (though we are not currently aware of a remote exploit.)

Fixed packages are available in version 1.3-31.slink1 for Debian 2.1 (slink) and version 1.3-33.1 for Debian 2.2 (potato). We recommend upgrading your sysklogd package immediately.

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