Package : common-lisp-controller
Vulnerability : design error
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2657

François-René Rideau discovered a bug in common-lisp-controller, a
Common Lisp source and compiler manager, that allows a local user to
compile malicious code into a cache directory which is executed by
another user if that user has not used Common Lisp before.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.15sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.18.

We recommend that you upgrade your common-lisp-controller package.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
