Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA681] DSA-681-1 synaesthesia

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-681-1 synaesthesia

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Erik Sjölund and Devin Carraway discovered that synaesthesia, a
program for representing sounds visually, accesses user-controlled
configuration and mixer files with elevated rights. Thus, it is
possible to read arbitrary files.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1-2.1woody3.
For the testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distribution this problem
does not exist since synaesthesia is not installed setuid root
anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your synaesthesia package.
