Debian Security Advisory DSA-038-1                                            Martin Schulze
March 8, 2001

Package        : sgml-tools
Vulnerability  : insecure use of tempfiles
Type           : local tempfile problem
Debian-specific: no
Fixed version  : 1.0.9-15

Former versions of sgml-tools created temporary files directly in /tmp
in an insecure fashion.  Version 1.0.9-15 and higher create a
subdirectory first and open temporary files within that directory.

We recommend you upgrade your sgml-tools package.

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

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