Package        : synaesthesia
Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0070

Erik Sjölund and Devin Carraway discovered that synaesthesia, a
program for representing sounds visually, accesses user-controlled
configuration and mixer files with elevated privileges.  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.


Upgrade Instructions
- - --------------------

        will fetch the file for you
