    Package        : elvis-tiny
    Problem type   : /tmp-file vulnerability
    Debian-specific: no
    Topi Miettinen audited elvis-tiny and raised an issue covering the use
    and creation of temporary files.  Those files are created with a
    predictable pattern and O_EXCL flag is not used when opening. This
    makes users of elvis-tiny vulnerable to race conditions and/or data
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.4-10 and we recommend that
    you upgrade your elvis-tiny packages immediately.
    This problem does not exist in the big elvis package.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

      Slink is no longer being supported by the Debian Security Team.  We
      highly recommend an upgrade to the current stable release.
