    Package        : flexbackup
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4802
    Debian Bug     : 334350
    
    Eric Romang discovered that the flexbackup backup tool creates temporary
    files in an insecure manner, which allows denial of service through a
    symlink attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-2sarge1
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1.2.1-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your flexbackup package.
