ftpwatch package for Debian has root compromise

From: Wichert

We have found that the ftpwatch package as distributed in Debian
GNU/Linux 1.3 and later distributions has a security problem which
makes it trivial for users to gain root access.

We recommend that you remove the ftpwatch package

We will be working on a new version of ftpwatch to address these
issues and will announce that in a new advisory.
