Package: nfs-common (from nfs-utils) Vulnerability: remote root exploit Debian-specific: no

The version of nfs-common distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (a.k.a potato), as well as in the unstable (woody) distribution, is vulnerable to a remote root compromise. No exploit is known to exist in the wild, but the vulnerability has been verified.

This has been fixed in version 0.1.9.1-1 of the nfs-common package. We recommend that you update nfs-common immediately.
