Package        : purity
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no

Two buffer overflows have been discovered in purity, a game for nerds
and hackers, which is installed setgid games on a Debian system.  This
problem could be exploited to gain unauthorized access to the group
games.  A malicious user could alter the highscore of several games.

This problem has been fixed in version 1-14.2 for the current stable
distribution (woody), in version 1-9.1 for the old stable distribution
(potato) and in version 1-16 for the unstable distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your purity packages.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
