    Package        : lm-sensors
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2672]
    Debian Bug     : 324193
    
    Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that a script of lm-sensors,
    utilities to read temperature/voltage/fan sensors, creates a temporary
    file with a predictable filename, leaving it vulnerable for a symlink
    attack.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.1-1sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.1-7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lm-sensors 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.
