    Package : leksbot
    Vulnerability : improper setuid-root execution
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: yes

    Maurice Massar discovered that, due to a packaging error, the program
    /usr/bin/KATAXWR was inadvertently installed setuid root. This
    program was not designed to run setuid, and contained multiple
    vulnerabilities which could be exploited to gain root privileges.

    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-3.1.

    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a leksbot
    package.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-5.

    We recommend that you update your leksbot package.

    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------

    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.
