Package        : lv
Vulnerability  : privilege escalation
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0188

Leonard Stiles discovered that lv, a multilingual file viewer, would
read options from a configuration file in the current directory.
Because such a file could be placed there by a malicious user, and lv
configuration options can be used to execute commands, this
represented a security vulnerability.  An attacker could gain the
privileges of the user invoking lv, including root.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.49.4-7woody2.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
in version 4.49.3-4potato2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
4.49.5-2.

We recommend that you update your lv package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

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
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
