    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.
