Package        : luxman
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0385

Kevin Finisterre discovered a buffer overflow in luxman, an SVGA based
PacMan clone, that could lead to the execution of arbitrary commands
as root.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.41-17.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your luxman package.
