Package        : graphviz
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2965

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure tmporary file
creation in graphviz, a rich set of graph drawing tools, that can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary files by a local attacker.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem probably persists
but the package is non-free.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphviz package.


Upgrade Instructions
- - --------------------

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.
