Package        : xwine
Vulnerability  : various
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0930 CVE-2008-0931

Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered several local
vulnerabilities have been discovered in xwine, a graphical user interface
for the WINE emulator.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:

CVE-2008-0930
  The xwine command makes unsafe use of local temporary files when
  printing.  This could allow the removal of arbitrary files belonging
  to users who invoke the program.

CVE-2008-0931
  The xwine command changes the permissions of the global WINE configuration
  file such that it is world-writable.  This could allow local users to edit
  it such that arbitrary commands could be executed whenever any local user
  executed a program under WINE.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version
1.0.1-1etch1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xwine package.
