Description

Max Vozeler found that the cdrecord program, which is suid root, fails to drop euid=0 when it exec()s a program specified by the user through the $RSH environment variable. This can be abused by a local attacker to obtain root privileges.

The updated packages are patched to fix the vulnerability.
