    Package        : ipmenu
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2004-2569
    BugTraq ID     : 10269
    Debian Bug     : 244709
    
    Akira Yoshiyama noticed that ipmenu, an cursel iptables/iproute2 GUI,
    creates a temporary file in an insecure fashion allowing a local
    attacker to overwrite arbitrary files utilising a symlink attack.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.0.3-4woody1
    
    The stable distribution (sarge) does not contain the ipmenu package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.0.3-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ipmenu package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      its next update.
