For one thing, look at the date it was compiled.  Is it before or
after the DSA (Debian Security Announcement)?  If it was built before
the defects were discovered and corrected, then it can't possibly
contain the corrections :-).

It isn't the kernel you want.  You want 'kernel-image-2.4.18-1-386'
(as recommended by the DSA).  Find it at
http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/k/kernel-image-2.4.18-1-i386/kernel-headers-2.4.18-1-386_2.4.18-8_i386.deb
