Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA684] DSA-684-1 typespeed

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-684-1 typespeed

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
problem in typespeed, a touch-typist trainer disguised as game. This
could lead to a local attacker executing arbitrary code as group
games.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.1-2.3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your typespeed package.
