    Package        : gtkdiskfree
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file creation
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2918
    Eric Romang discovered that gtkdiskfree, a GNOME program that shows
    free and used space on filesystems, creates a temporary file in an
    insecure fashion.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the gtkdiskfree
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.9.3-4sarge1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your gtkdiskfree package.
