||SuSe / Debian man package format string vulnerability
||31st January 2001
This issue has been discussed in vuln-dev (2001-01-26), see:
Posted also on suse security list, and aparently overlooked.
The man package that ships with SuSe Linux ( at least versions 6.1 throught
7.0 ) has a format string vulnerability. Also debian 2.2r2 ( at least ), is
confirmed to have the same problem.
