Posted by Joe Shakespeare

 Problem Description:

 The Trustix developers discovered that the lvmcreate_initrd script,
 part of the lvm1 package, created a temporary directory in an
 insecure manner.  This could allow for a symlink attack to create
 or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running
 the script.

 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
