Package        : libmail-audit-perl
Vulnerability  : insecure temporay file createion
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4536
Debian Bug     : 344029

This update only corrects the update for sarge, the version in woody is correct.

Niko Tyni discovered that the Mail::Audit module, a Perl library for
creating simple mail filters, logs to a temporary file with a
predictable filename in an insecure fashion when logging is turned on,
which is not the case by default.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0-4woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1-5sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1-5.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libmail-audit-perl package.

        will fetch the file for you

sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
