    Package        : dhis-tools-dns
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3341
    
    Javier Fern�ndez-Sanguino Pe�a from the Debian Security Audit project
    discovered that two scripts in the dhis-tools-dns package, DNS
    configuration utilities for a dynamic host information System, which
    are usually executed by root, create temporary files in an insecure
    fashion.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a dhis-tools-dns
    package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.0-3sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 5.0-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dhis-tools-dns 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.
