Package        : loop-aes-utils
Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2876

David Watson discoverd a bug in mount as provided by util-linux and
other packages such as loop-aes-utils that allows local users to
bypass filesystem access restrictions by re-mounting it read-only.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain loop-aes-utils

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.12p-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.12p-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your loop-aes-utils package.
