Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA655] DSA-655-1 zhcon

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-655-1 zhcon

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Erik Sjölund discovered that zhcon, a fast console CJK system using
the Linux framebuffer, accesses a user-controlled configuration file
with elevated rights. Thus, it is possible to read arbitrary
files.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2-4woody3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your zhcon package.
