Debian Security Advisory DSA-1526-1 security@debian.org

Package : xwine
Vulnerability : various
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0930 CVE-2008-0931

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.
