Debian Security Advisory DSA-095-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Robert van der Meulen December 27, 2001


Package : gpm Problem type : local root vulnerability Debian-specific: no

The package 'gpm' contains the 'gpm-root' program, which can be used to create mouse-activated menus on the console. Among other problems, the gpm-root program contains a format string vulnerability, which allows an attacker to gain root privileges.

This has been fixed in version 1.17.8-18.1, and we recommend that you upgrade your 1.17.8-18 package immediately.

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato


Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
