    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.

    Package        : wml
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
    Problem type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CVE-2008-0665 CVE-2008-0666
    Debian Bugs    : 463907 471345
    
    The security update DSA 1492-1 fixed the security problem below but
    introduced a new problem by not removing temporary directories in the
    ipp backend.  This update corrects this.
    
    For completeness here is the original advisory text:
    
       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.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) is not affected.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.11-1etch2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.11ds1-0.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wml package.
