    Package        : apachetop
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2660
    
    Eric Romang discovered an insecurely created temporary file in
    apachetop, a realtime monitoring tool for the Apache webserver that
    could be exploited with a symlink attack to overwrite arbitrary files
    with the user id that runs apachetop.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.5-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.5-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apachetop 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.
