Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

driver from Roaring Penguin. When the program is running setuid root
(which is not the case in a default Debian installation), a possible hacker
could overwrite any file on the file system.

version 3.3-1.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.5-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your pppoe package.
