    Package        : eroaster
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2003-0656
    
    eroaster, a frontend for burning CD-R media using cdrecord, does not
    take appropriate security precautions when creating a temporary file
    for use as a lockfile.  This bug could potentially be exploited to
    overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running
    eroaster.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.1.0.0.3-2woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.0-0.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you update your eroaster package.
