Debian 6.0.8 released

The Debian Project
Updated Debian 6.0: 6.0.8 released
October 20th, 2013

The Debian project is pleased to announce the eighth update of its
oldstable distribution Debian 6.0 (codename `squeeze'). This update
mainly adds corrections for security problems to the oldstable release,
along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories
were already published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
6.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to
throw away old `squeeze' CDs or DVDs but only to update via an
up-to-date Debian mirror after an installation, to cause any out of date
packages to be updated.

Those who frequently install updates from won't have
to update many packages and most updates from are
included in this update.

New installation media and CD and DVD images containing updated packages
will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the
aptitude (or apt) package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to
one of Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of
mirrors is available at:
