    Package: tcsh
    Vulnerability: local exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Proton reported on bugtraq that tcsh did not handle in-here documents
    correctly. The version of tcsh that is distributed with Debian GNU/Linux
    2.2r0 also suffered from this problem.
    
    When using in-here documents using the << syntax tcsh uses a temporary
    file to store the data. Unfortunately the temporary file is not created
    securely and standard symlink attacks can be used to make tcsh overwrite
    arbitrary files.
    
    This has been fixed in version 6.09.00-10 and we recommend that you
    upgrade your tcsh package immediately.
    
    
    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.
