Typespeed Update for Debian
Posted on: 12/27/2002 11:41 PM

A new security update for Debian GNU/Linux has been released:

DSA-217-1 typespeed -- buffer overflow
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.
