That's apt-listbugs telling you there's been a grave bug filed against
the package.  So, based on that information, what do you want to do?
If you've never seen it segfault, or if that doesn't worry you too
much, go ahead and say "y".  What have you got to lose?  It might work
alright or it might segfault.  Woohoo.

On the other hand, if the bug mentions "remote root exploit", you
might want to reconsider just how much you want it.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
