    Package        : aria2
    Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CVE-2010-1512
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in aria2, a download client. The "name"
    attribute of the "file" element of metalink files is not properly
    sanitised before using it to download files. If a user is tricked into
    downloading from a specially crafted metalink file, this can be
    exploited to download files to directories outside of the intended
    download directory.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.14.0-1+lenny2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.9.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your aria2 package.
