Security Hole

Two or more security holes were in all the versions of apt-support. Since these are corrected by security-keeper, please do not use apt-support.


`apt-support' renamed `security-keeper'. see http://www.j96.org/~kouji/security-keeper/.

What's apt-support

apt-support is a security support tool on Debian GNU/Linux. It checks the package operation(install or remove or upgrade) affects machine environment(process or inetd service etc). If it discovers a problem, suitable management will be performed automatically. The result is reported to a machine administrator.

For example, apt-support is performed when new Debian Security Advisories is offered. Thereby, security management(process and port etc are stopped that has security hole) can be performed automatically.
