    Kevin Finisterre discovered a buffer overflow in luxman, an SVGA based
    PacMan clone, that could lead to the execution of arbitrary commands
    as root.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.41-17.2.

    We recommend that you upgrade your luxman package.
