    Package        : roundup
    Vulnerability  : insufficient access checks
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Debian Bug     : 518768
    
    It was discovered that roundup, an issue tracker with a command-line,
    web and email interface, allows users to edit resources in
    unauthorized ways, including granting themselves admin rights.
    
    This update introduces stricter access checks, actually enforcing the
    configured permissions and roles.  This means that the configuration
    may need updating.  In addition, user registration via the web
    interface has been disabled; use the program "roundup-admin" from the
    command line instead.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-10+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.4-4+lenny1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your roundup package.
