    Package        : jnethack
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow, incorrect permissions
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0358 CAN-2003-0359
    The jnethack package is vulnerable to a buffer overflow exploited via a
    long '-s' command line option.  This vulnerability could be used by an
    attacker to gain gid 'games' on a system where jnethack is installed.
    Additionally, some setgid binaries in the jnethack package have
    incorrect permissions, which could allow a user who gains gid 'games'
    to replace these binaries, potentially causing other users to execute
    malicious code when they run jnethack.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.5-11woody2.
    For the old stable distribution (potato) these problems have been
    fixed in version 1.1.3-4potato1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in
    version 1.1.5-15.
    We recommend that you update your jnethack package.
