    Package        : ketm
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3535
    
    Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a buffer
    overflow in ketm, an old school 2D-scrolling shooter game, that can be
    exploited to execute arbitrary code with group games privileges.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.0.6-7woody0.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.0.6-17sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.0.6-17sarge1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ketm package.
