Thanks. I'm looking to find out if a security vulnerability does exist in
Debian as was reported on packetstorm. I posted to debian-security and
have had no response yet.

packages.debian.org didn't help me much. You'll note that the program is
"called" pfinger, but the executable is "finger" without the p, this means
that it's not the fp-units-net version.
