Compaq apparently released patches for the above mentioned vulnerability
(and possibly some others) in the last day or two. I saw no mention of this
so I thought I would throw it out.

From the CERT info on the vulnerability:

Vulnerability Note VU#10277
Various shells create temporary files insecurely when using << operator
Overview
sh uses /tmp files of a predictable name in creating files for input
redirection using the << operator.

patch/security information;

patches.
