    It was discovered that loop-aes-utils, tools for mounting and manipulating
    filesystems, didn't drop privileged users and groups in the correct order
    in the mount and umount commands.  This could potentially allow a local
    user to gain additional privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    2.12r-15+etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.12p-4sarge2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your loop-aes-utils package.
    
    Upgrade instructions
