The remote host is missing an update to xtel announced via advisory DSA 090-1.

Insight

Insight

The xtel (a X emulator for minitel) package as distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has two possible symlink attacks: * xteld creates a temporary file /tmp/.xtel-<user> without checking for symlinks. * when printing a hardcope xtel would create a temporary file without protecting itself against symlink attacks. Both problems have been fixed in version 3.2.1-4.potato.1 .
