Summary

The remote host is missing an update to kdeedu announced via advisory DSA 818-1. Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discoverd that langen2kvhtml from the kvoctrain package from the kdeedu suite creates temporary files in an insecure fashion. This leaves them open for symlink attacks. The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2-3.sarge.1. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 3.4.2-1. We recommend that you upgrade your kvoctrain package. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20818-1
