Debian 'nano' and 'slocate' package updates

Author: JT Smith

A pair of Debian packages have been updated. The nano package suffers from a non-Debian specific symlink attack, and the slocate package suffers from a non-Debian specific local root exploit. Instructions on package upgrading are in the advisories. Thanks again to lwn.net for the advisories.
