    Package        : liece
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    liece, an IRC client for Emacs, does not take appropriate security
    precautions when creating temporary files.  This bug could potentially
    be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the
    user running Emacs and liece, potentially with contents supplied
    by the attacker.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0+0.20020217cvs-2.1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0+0.20030527cvs-1.
    We recommend that you update your liece package.
