    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.
