    Debian-specific: no
    
    The make package as shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 is vulnerable to a
    race condition that can be exploited with a symlink attack. make used
    mktemp while creating temporary files in /tmp. and that is a known
    potential security hole, as documented in the man page of mktemp.
    
    This has been fixed in version 3.77-5slink. We recommend you upgrade
    your make package immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
