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
  680x0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
