I didn't talk about a critical package but about a critical bug:

critical    makes unrelated software on the system (or the whole
            system) break,
            or causes serious data loss, or introduces a security hole on 
            systems where you install the package.

This bug report (#59191) was about buffer overflows in lynx.
