    Package        : dialog
    Problem type   : insecure temporary files
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Matt Kraai reported that he found a problem in the way dialog
    creates lock-files: it did not create them safely which made it
    susceptible to a symlink attack.
    
    This has been fixed in version 0.9a-20000118-3bis.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
