    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
    We recommend that you upgrade your synaesthesia package.
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
