    Package        : tkdiff
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3343
    
    Javier Fern�ndez-Sanguino Pe�a from the Debian Security Audit project
    discovered that tkdiff, a graphical side by side "diff" utility,
    creates temporary files in an insecure fashion.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.08-3woody0.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0.2-1sarge0.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0.2-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tkdiff package.
