    Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered several local
    vulnerabilities have been discovered in xwine, a graphical user interface
    for the WINE emulator.
    
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2008-0930
      The xwine command makes unsafe use of local temporary files when
      printing.  This could allow the removal of arbitrary files belonging
      to users who invoke the program.
    
    CVE-2008-0931
      The xwine command changes the permissions of the global WINE configuration
      file such that it is world-writable.  This could allow local users to edit
      it such that arbitrary commands could be executed whenever any local user
      executed a program under WINE.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version
    1.0.1-1etch1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xwine package.
    
    
    Upgrade instructions

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
