Vulnerability  : design flaw
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2542
Debian Bug     : 366816

The xmcdconfig creates directories world-writeable allowing local
users to fill the /usr and /var partition and hence cause a denial of
service.  This problem has been half-fixed since version 2.3-1.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6-14woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6-17sarge1.
