Package: jitterbug
Version: 1.6.2-4
Severity: normal

In order to use the chroot feature of jitterbug it is necessary to set
the /usr/cgi-bin/jitterbug to -rws--x-- (according to the INSTALL
document).  However, doing this causes accesses as guest to not
include the guestintro.html, header.html and footer.html because
jitterbug.display_file() does not display the file because geteuid()
returns 0.  I believe the get[ug]id() calls in jitterbug.c lines 649,
652, 656 and 659 should be gete[ug]id() calls, and possibly the
corresponding set[gu]id() calls also the effective versions.
According to a comment in jitterbug's jitterbug database, this can
cause some security risk
see reply 1) 

Thanks for your work.
