    Package        : migrationtools
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0512
    Debian Bug     : 338920
    
    Jason Hoover discovered that migrationtools, a collection of scripts
    to migrate user data to LDAP creates several temporary files insecurely,
    which might lead to denial of service through a symlink attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 46-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 46-2.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your migrationtools package.
