Package        : tkdiff
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3343

Javier Fern�ndez-Sanguino Pe�a from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that tkdiff, a graphical side by side "diff" utility,
creates temporary files in an insecure fashion.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.08-3woody0.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.0.2-1sarge0.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.0.2-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your tkdiff 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.
