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.
