    Package        : atari800
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0630
    
    Steve Kemp discovered multiple buffer overflows in atari800, an Atari
    emulator.  In order to directly access graphics hardware, one of the
    affected programs is setuid root.  A local attacker could exploit this
    vulnerability to gain root privileges.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.2.2-1woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    Refer to Debian bug #203707.
    
    We recommend that you update your atari800 package.
