Frank Lichtenheld and Nico Golde discovered that WML, an off-line HTML generation toolkit, creates insecure temporary files in the eperl and ipp backends and in the wmg.cgi script, which could lead to local denial of service by overwriting files.

Frank Lichtenheld and Nico Golde discovered that WML, an off-line HTML
generation toolkit, creates insecure temporary files in the eperl and
ipp backends and in the wmg.cgi script, which could lead to local denial
of service by overwriting files.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.11-1etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected.

We recommend that you upgrade your wml packages.

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.


Debian 4.0 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
