Description

==================================================================== Debian GNU/Linux Security May 08, 1998

We have received a report that versions super were displaying files even if the particular user should not be able to read them. This has been forwarded to the upstream author, William Deich, who has released a fixed version.

If you have super installed on your machines we suggest that you upgrade immetiately. The problem is fixed in any 3.11.6 version of super.

dpkg -i file.deb will install the referred file.
