    Package        : common-lisp-controller
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2657
    
    François-René Rideau discovered a bug in common-lisp-controller, a
    Common Lisp source and compiler manager, that allows a local user to
    compile malicious code into a cache directory which is executed by
    another user if that user has not used Common Lisp before.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.15sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.18.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your common-lisp-controller package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions

    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.
