Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Linux kernel. If you
want the details, please take a look at the DSA's from Debian:


We recommend that you upgrade your kernel packages to the new 2.6.18
version built for Debian.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

Make sure 'deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sarge main' or similar is
present in your /etc/apt/sources.list and run 'apt-get update' to
update your package lists.

Find which flavour of the kernel you are running with the command
'uname -r' (examples: 386, 586tsc, 686, 686-smp, k6, k7, k7-smp).

To upgrade, run this command replacing <flavour> with yours:

  apt-get install linux-image-2.6.18-5-<flavour>

Remember that you have to reboot your computers after upgrading this
package. If you are unfamiliar with kernel upgrades, please visit our
mini-HOWTO on this subject:
