Dungeon Crawl contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered because the program executes programs in an insecure manner when saving or loading games, allowing a local user to gain 'games' group privileges. This flaw may lead to a loss of integrity.
Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds issued by the vendor to correct this issue.
Debian users should upgrade using the new packages that have been made available for the 'woody', 'sarge' and 'sid' distributions.
