    Cedric Krier discovered that the Tryton client does not sanitize the
    file extension supplied by the server when processing reports.  As a
    result, a malicious server could send a report with a crafted file
    extension that causes the client to write any local file to which the
    user running the client has write access.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.1-1+deb6u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.3-1+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tryton-client packages.
