    Package        : typespeed
    Vulnerability  : format string
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0105
    Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit Project discovered a
    problem in typespeed, a touch-typist trainer disguised as game.  This
    could lead to a local attacker executing arbitrary code as group
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.1-2.3.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your typespeed package.
