    Tim Waugh found several insecure uses of temporary files in the xsane
    program, which is used for scanning.  This was fixed for Debian/stable
    by moving those files into a securely created directory within the
    /tmp directory.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 0.50-5.1 for the stable Debian
    distribution and in version 0.84-0.1 for the testing and unstable
    distribution of Debian.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xsane package.
    
    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.
