    Package        : sgml-tools
    Vulnerability  : insecure use of tempfiles
    Type           : local tempfile problem
    Debian-specific: no
    Fixed version  : 1.0.9-15
    
    Former versions of sgml-tools created temporary files directly in /tmp
    in an insecure fashion.  Version 1.0.9-15 and higher create a
    subdirectory first and open temporary files within that directory.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your sgml-tools package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
