    Package        : fcheck
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1753
    
    Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered that
    a cronjob contained in fcheck, a file integrity checker, creates
    a temporary file in an insecure fashion.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7.59-7sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.7.59-8
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your fcheck 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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
