    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.
