Package        : elvis-tiny
Problem type   : /tmp-file vulnerability
Debian-specific: no

Topi Miettinen audited elvis-tiny and raised an issue covering the use
and creation of temporary files.  Those files are created with a
predictable pattern and O_EXCL flag is not used when opening. This
makes users of elvis-tiny vulnerable to race conditions and/or data
lossage.

This problem has been fixed in version 1.4-10 and we recommend that
you upgrade your elvis-tiny packages immediately.

This problem does not exist in the big elvis package.

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


Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  Slink is no longer being supported by the Debian Security Team.  We
  highly recommend an upgrade to the current stable release.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ---------------------------------

  Potato was released for the Alpha, ARM, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0,
  PowerPC and Sun SPARC architectures.  Fixes are available for all of
  them and will be included in 2.2r2.
