    Package        : ppxp
    Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0392
    
    Jens Steube discovered that ppxp, yet another PPP program, does not
    release root privileges when opening potentially user supplied log
    files.  This can be tricked into opening a root shell.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.2001080415-6woody1 (DSA 725-1).
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2001080415-10sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2001080415-11.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ppxp package.
