    Package        : typespeed
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    
    A problem has been discovered in the typespeed, a game that lets you
    measure your typematic speed.  By overflowing a buffer  a local
    attacker could execute arbitrary commands under the group id games.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.4.1-2.1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.4.0-5.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.2-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your typespeed package.
    
    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.
