    Package        : netpbm-free
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0924
    netpbm is graphics conversion toolkit made up of a large number of
    single-purpose programs.  Many of these programs were found to create
    temporary files in an insecure manner, which could allow a local
    attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking a
    vulnerable netpbm tool.
    For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
    fixed in version 2:9.20-8.4.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:9.25-9.
    We recommend that you update your netpbm-free package.
