    Debian Bug     : 
    
    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that several scripts of the
    hylafax suite, a flexible client/server fax software, create temporary
    files and directories in an insecure fashion, leaving them vulnerable
    to symlink exploits.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.1-3.2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.2.1-5sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
