New Debian Mailing List Set Up: debian-security-announce

May 23rd, 1998

Debian-security-announce is a new mailing-list, dedicated to the broadcasting of Debian Security Advisories. The advisories will document security vulnerabilities in the current versions of Debian and provide fixes, either as updated Debian packages to fetch and install or as instructions for working around the security problem.

The list is low-volume and digital (PGP) signatures are used for moderation, so subscribing to it will not add a single piece of spam to your mailbox. We encourage everyone to subscribe.

To subscribe:

send email to with the single word 'subscribe' as the subject of the mail.
