SuSE: xmcd security update

Author: JT Smith

Posted at LWN.net: "Cda, a setuid commandline part of xmcd, a X11/Motif audio CD player by
Ti Kan , was found vulnerable by a link attack and some
bufferoverflows.
These bugs could be exploited by an adversary, who has access to the
system, to overwrite files or gain higher privileges."
