    Package        : synaesthesia
    Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0070
    
    Erik Sjölund and Devin Carraway discovered that synaesthesia, a
    program for representing sounds visually, accesses user-controlled
    configuration and mixer files with elevated privileges.  Thus, it is
    possible to read arbitrary files.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1-2.1woody3.
    
    For the testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distribution this problem
    does not exist since synaesthesia is not installed setuid root
    anymore.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your synaesthesia package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
