    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
    lossage.
    
    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.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
    - --------------------------------
    
      Slink is no longer being supported by the Debian Security Team.  We
      highly recommend an upgrade to the current stable release.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
    - ---------------------------------
    
      Potato was released for the Alpha, ARM, Intel ia32, Motorola 680x0,
      PowerPC and Sun SPARC architectures.  Fixes are available for all of
      them and will be included in 2.2r2.
