    Package        : joe
    Problem type   : local exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Christer Öberg of Wkit Security AB found a problem in joe (Joe's
    Own Editor). joe will look for a configuration file in three
    locations: the current directory, the users homedirectory ($HOME)
    and in /etc/joe. Since the configuration file can define commands
    joe will run (for example to check spelling) reading it from
    the current directory can be dangerous: an attacker can leave
    a .joerc file in a writable directory, which would be read when
    a unsuspecting user starts joe in that directory.
    
    This has been fixed in version 2.8-15.3 and we recommend that
    you upgrade your joe package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
