    Adam Zabrocki discovered multiple buffer overflows in atari800, an
    Atari emulator.  In order to directly access graphics hardware, one of
    the affected programs is installed setuid root.  A local attacker
    could exploit this vulnerability to gain root privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.2-1woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your atari800 package immediately.
