Re: Security Update
Yeah, sure Mark. Here's what you do:
Make sure you have this entry in your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
Be sure it's not commented-out (with a "#" in front of the line). Then do
"apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" and you'll get all of the upgrades
to your installed packages. You might want to try "apt-get dist-upgrade"
as that seems to have better dependency handling. Read the manpage for
apt-get for more info.
I'd recommend doing this on a periodic basis, and continue to monitor both
this list and BugTraq.
Apt-get is one of the (many) pure joys of using Debian.

I've just use Debian for the first time in my life. I want to upgrade the
applications or anything to mmake it more secure (i think it will use apps

what commands should i type from the console to update the security fixes
for a/any package(s)? Could i use apt-get?
