Description

Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered several local vulnerabilities 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.
