    suds vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Suds could be made to overwrite files.
    
    Software Description:
    - suds: Lightweight SOAP client for Python
    
    Details:
    
    Ralph Loader discovered that Suds incorrectly handled temporary files. A
    local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files.
    In the default installation of Ubuntu, this should be prevented by the Yama
    link restrictions.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      python-suds                     0.4.1-5ubuntu0.13.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      python-suds                     0.4.1-5ubuntu0.12.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      python-suds                     0.4.1-2ubuntu1.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
