An incoming update will perform

setcap cap_dac_override,cap_sys_rawio=ep /usr/bin/dvdae
setcap cap_dac_override,cap_sys_rawio=ep /usr/bin/dvdae-gui

in the .install file so the program could be launched as user

Yes, it most definitely could be a rootkit and if in doubt do not install it. It is a closed source binary so caution is always advised. You may consider emailing them and seeing if they would be willing to release the source or an update: support@dvdae.com That being said when I first used this I was concerned as well and spent a fair amount of time reverse engineering it until I felt it safe enough to install (which is still installed). Also, worth noting. There isn't anything else out there that can do what this program does. I have 100 or so DVD Audio disks from several years ago. Some tools will do some but not most of them. I haven't used this tool in several months but I do remember having a difficult time getting six channels extracted with any other tools for most of the DVD Audio disks. If you are really worried you might consider a using a virtual machine. Especially since DVD Audio Disks are not a common occurrence and you could just do it once all in batch. Also, I wrote some scripts to extract all my DVD Audio disks with this so feel free to shoot me an email if you want them.

WTF? Is this a root kit? From the capabilities man page: CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE Bypass file read, write, and execute permission checks. (DAC is an abbreviation of "discretionary access control".)
