Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA430] DSA-430-1 trr19

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-430-1 trr19

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Steve Kemp discovered a problem in trr19, a type trainer application
for GNU Emacs, which is written as a pair of setgid() binaries and
wrapper programs which execute commands for GNU Emacs. However, the
binaries don't drop rights before executing a command, permiting an
attacker to gain access to the local group games.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0beta5-15woody1. The mipsel binary will be added later.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your trr19 package.
