Problem description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in acpid:

Oliver-Tobias Ripka discovered that an ACPI script incorrectly handled
power button events. A local attacker could use this to execute
arbitrary code, and possibly escalate privileges (CVE-2011-2777).

Helmut Grohne and Michael Biebl discovered that ACPI scripts were
executed with a permissive file mode creation mask (umask). A local
attacker could read files and modify directories created by ACPI
scripts that did not set a strict umask (CVE-2011-4578).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
