    glibc in unstable has a security hole.
    Posted on Thursday, January 11 @ 11:44:10 GMT

    Debian
    This is a late warning for all the users that run unstable but don't scan bugtraq, debian-devel or any other major lists. glibc in unstable has a security hole that allows anyone to read almost any file. new glibc is in incoming (or was this morning) update your system ASAP.

    How about pointers to bugtraq, etc. regarding the bug, severity, etc. Is it a local or remote exploit?
