    Package : module-assistant
    Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
    Problem type : local
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID : CAN-2005-3121

    Eduard Bloch discovered that a rule file in module-assistant, a tool
    to ease the creation of module packages, creates a temporary file in
    an insecure fashion. It is usually executed from other packages as
    well.

    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a module-assistant
    package.

    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9sarge1.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.10.

    We recommend that you upgrade your module-assistant package.

    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------

    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:

    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages

    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

    Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
