    There is a vulnerability in LuxMan. When successfully exploited it a local attacker with read write access to the Memory, leading to a local root compromise in many ways, examples of which include scanning the file for fragments of the master password file and modifying kernel memory to re-map system calls.

    Package        : luxman
    Vulnerability  : local root exploit
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1245
    
    iDEFENSE reported about a vulnerability in LuxMan, a maze game for
    GNU/Linux, similar to the PacMan arcade game.  When successfully
    exploited it a local attacker with read write access to the Memory,
    leading to a local root compromise in many ways, examples of which
    include scanning the file for fragments of the master password file
    and modifying kernel memory to re-map system calls.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 0.41-17.1 the current stable
    distribution (woody) and in version 0.41-19 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
    affected since it doesn't contain a luxman package
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your luxman package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
