The maintainer of Debian GNU/Linux cfengine package found a error
in the way cfengine handles temporary files when it runs the tidy
action on homedirectories, which makes it suspectible to a symlink
attack. The author has been notified of the problem but has not
released a fix yet.

We recommend you upgrade your cfengine package immediately.
