    Package        : xine-ui
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file creation
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0372
    Bugtraq ID     : 9939
    
    Shaun Colley discovered a problem in xine-ui, the xine video player
    user interface.  A script contained in the package to possibly remedy
    a problem or report a bug does not create temporary files in a secure
    fashion.  This could allow a local attacker to overwrite files with
    the privileges of the user invoking xine.
    
    This update also removes the bug reporting facility since bug reports
    can't be processed upstream anymore.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.8-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xine-ui package.
