    Package        : common-lisp-controller
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2657
    The bugfix for the problem mentioned below contained an error that
    caused third party programs to fail.  The problem is corrected by this
    update.  For completeness we're including the original advisory text:
       Fran�ois-Ren� 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 4.15sarge3.
    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.

      Source archives:
          Size/MD5 checksum:      599 20ea8fa341ceb1cf7b023aff4df6e389
          Size/MD5 checksum:    25132 0f2d6f3e075eb70397b6664c37e99867

          Size/MD5 checksum:    24184 854430ec786872dc81f7d735dd554e54
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
