    Package        : htmlheadline
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1181
    
    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña has discovered multiple insecure uses
    of temporary files that could lead to overwriting arbitrary files via
    a symlink attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 21.8-3.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) does not contain this package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your htmlheadline package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
