Package: pytris
Version: 0.98+nmu1
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

The setgid wrapper for this game makes no attempt at security.

It can trivially be used to execute code as group games, which can be
used to exploit other players of the game via the score file.

It could be fixed - the security team suggests dropping the shared score
file, and thus the wrapper. However, this package has not seen a
maintainer upload in years, and is stated as being unmaintained by the
author, on his website:

I believe the best solution is removal, from unstable, squeeze, and

Radovan, are you OK with reassigning this to ftp.debian.org?

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from stable:

    pytris |       0.98 | source, alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc

------------------- Reason -------------------
RoM; security issues; abandoned upstream

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive (ftp-master.debian.org) and will not propagate to any
mirrors (ftp.debian.org included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are usually not removed from testing by hand. Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency
problems. The release team can force a removal from testing if it is
really needed, please contact them if this should be the case.

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to 608740@bugs.debian.org.
