Exclamation Testing has now security support


In case someone missed it, Debian Testing Security Team announced September 9th, 2005 the beginning of full official security support for Debian testing.

To get the latest security updates, all Debian testing/etch users should add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list :

Code:
deb http://secure-testing.debian.net/debian-secure-testing etch/security-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://secure-testing.debian.net/debian-secure-testing etch/security-updates main contrib non-free
Alternatively, you can replace "secure-testing.debian.net" in the above lines with a mirror near you:

ftp.de.debian.org (located in Germany)
ftp.nl.debian.org (located in the Netherlands)
the.earth.li (located in UK)
ftp2.jp.debian.org (located in Japan)
farbror.acc.umu.se (located in Sweden)

Here's the official announcement:

oups, any idea how to import the key?

Hmm? You appear to have the APT version from unstable...

I think you can download the archive signing key from http://secure-testing-master.debian.net/ziyi-2005-7.asc and then execute the following command as root:

# apt-key add ziyi-2005-7.asc

Then run "apt-get update". Hope this helps.

Or try:
gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 8722E71E
apt-key add /root/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
dselect update
