    Stephen Gran and Mark Hymers discovered that some scripts run by GForge,
    a collaborative development tool, open files in write mode in a potentially
    insecure manner. This may be exploited to overwrite arbitary files on the
    local system.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    4.5.14-22etch8.
