Package        : trr19
Vulnerability  : missing privilege release
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0047

Steve Kemp discovered a problem in trr19, a type trainer application
for GNU Emacs, which is written as a pair of setgid() binaries and
wrapper programs which execute commands for GNU Emacs.  However, the
binaries don't drop privileges before executing a command, allowing an
attacker to gain access to the local group games.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0beta5-15woody1.  The mipsel binary will be added later.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your trr19 package.
