Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA189] DSA-189-1 luxman

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-189-1 luxman

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

iDEFENSE reported about a vulnerability in LuxMan, a maze game for
GNU/Linux, similar to the PacMan arcade game. When successfully
exploited a local attacker gains read-write access to the memory,
leading to a local root compromise in many ways, examples of which
include scanning the file for fragments of the master password file
and modifying kernel memory to re-map system calls.
This problem has been fixed in version 0.41-17.1 for the current stable
distribution (woody) and in version 0.41-19 for the unstable
distribution (sid). The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected since it doesn't contain a luxman package.
We recommend that you upgrade your luxman package immediately.
