    Package        : trr19
    Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0047
    
    Steve Kemp discovered a problem in trr19, a type trainer application
    for GNU Emacs, which is written as a pair of setgid() binaries and
    wrapper programs which execute commands for GNU Emacs.  However, the
    binaries don't drop privileges before executing a command, allowing an
    attacker to gain access to the local group games.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0beta5-15woody1.  The mipsel binary will be added later.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your trr19 package.
