Debian Security Advisory DSA-038-1 - sgml tools

by phiber on March 8th, 2001 Former versions of sgml-tools created temporary files directly in /tmp in an insecure fashion. Version 1.0.9-15 and higher create a subdirectory first and open temporary files within that directory.




Solution:


We recommend you upgrade your sgml-tools package.



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.
