    Package        : backupninja
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : 
    
    Moritz Muehlenhoff discovered the handler code for backupninja creates
    a temporary file with a predictable filename, leaving it vulnerable to
    a symlink attack. 
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the backupninja package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your backupninja 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.
