Debian Security Advisory DSA 609-1 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : atari800
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-1076

Adam Zabrocki discovered multiple buffer overflows in atari800, an Atari emulator. In order to directly access graphics hardware, one of the affected programs is installed setuid root. A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain root privileges.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.2-1woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your atari800 package immediately.
