Package        : vdr
Vulnerability  : insecure file access
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0071

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit Team has
discovered that the vdr daemon which is used for video disk recorders
for DVB cards can overwrite arbitrary files.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0-1woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.6-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your vdr 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.
