Package : tuxpaint
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3340

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña from the Debian Security Audit project
discovered that a script in tuxpaint, a paint program for young
children, creates a temporary file in an insecure fashion.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain tuxpaint packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.14-2sarge0.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.15b-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tuxpaint 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.
