Package        : hylafax
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3069
CERT advisory  : 
BugTraq ID     : 
Debian Bug     : 

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that several scripts of the
hylafax suite, a flexible client/server fax software, create temporary
files and directories in an insecure fashion, leaving them vulnerable
to symlink exploits.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.1.1-3.2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.2.1-5sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.2.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your hylafax packages.

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.
