Insight

Dmitry E. Oboukhov discovered that flamethrower creates predictable temporary filenames, which may lead to a local denial of service through a symlink attack. For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 0.1.8-1+etch1. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.1.8-2. We recommend that you upgrade your flamethrower package.
