Security update for Debian Testing - 2008-12-23
This automatic mail gives an overview over security issues that were recently
fixed in Debian Testing. The majority of fixed packages migrate to testing
from unstable. If this would take too long, fixed packages are uploaded to the
testing-security repository instead. It can also happen that vulnerable
packages are removed from Debian testing.
The following issues have been fixed by uploads to testing-security:
DTSA-181-1 : mplayer - arbitrary code execution
Removed from testing:
The following issues have been "fixed" by removing the (source) packages from
testing. This probably means that you have to manually uninstall the
corresponding binary packages to fix the issues.
It can also mean that the packages have been replaced, or that they have been
temporarily removed by the release team to make transitions from unstable
How to update:
Make sure the line
deb http://security.debian.org lenny/updates main contrib non-free
is present in your /etc/apt/sources.list. Of course, you also need the line
pointing to your normal lenny mirror. You can use
aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade
to install the updates.
