Debian update addresses multiple flaws

Back from the holidays

Debian users returning from the holidays need to update their Linux software following the release of a batch of security updates.

The updates address vulnerabilities in a number of packages including inotify-tools, typo3-src, tar, libsndfile, and peercast. Most of the flaws pose only a moderate risk, but flaws in the libsndfile library and peercast P2P tool could enable vulnerable systems to be compromised, security notification firm Secunia warns.

Users of Debian software on multiple hardware platforms may need to upgrade, as explained in a series of advisories by Debian published on 28 December. ®
