Debian Security Advisory DSA-1526-1                  security@debian.org

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

  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.

  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

We recommend that you upgrade your xwine package.
