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.
