Package: mtr
Vulnerability type: possible local exploit
Debian-specific: no

The version of mtr as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2l1 (aka
slink) did not drop root privileges correctly. While there are no
known exploits it is conceivable that a weakness in gtk or ncurses
could be used to exploit this.

This has been fixed in version 0.28-1, and we recommend that you
upgrade your mtr package.

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink


This version of Debian was released only for Intel ia32, the
Motorola 680×0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
