Apt bug & redirects




Hi all,

I just read about the current apt security update on The Register:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/01/22/debian_package_manager_flaws/

It suggests running apt update with redirects disallowed ... but
security.debian.org appears to do a redirect.

There's a tip at https://www.debian.org/security/2019/dsa-4371 , but
using the cdn-fastly url doesn't seem to work, at least for jessie
(haven't tried my stretch machines yet).

Anyone know if there's a direct url for (jessie) security updates that
doesn't rely on redirects?

Cheers,
Richard
