Debian liece, does not take appropriate securityprecautions when creating temporary files.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 341-1                                        Matt Zimmerman
July 7th, 2003

Package        : liece
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no

liece, an IRC client for Emacs, does not take appropriate security
precautions when creating temporary files.  This bug could potentially
be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the
user running Emacs and liece, potentially with contents supplied
by the attacker.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0+0.20020217cvs-2.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0+0.20030527cvs-1.

We recommend that you update your liece 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.
