Package        : gforge
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0167

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.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gforge package.
