    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Team has
    discovered that the vdr daemon which is used for video disk recorders
    for DVB cards can overwrite arbitrary files.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0-1woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.6-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vdr package.

      its next update.
