DSA-500-1 flim

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Tatsuya Kinoshita discovered a vulnerability in flim, an emacs library
for working with internet messages, where temporary files were created
without taking appropriate precautions. This vulnerability could
potentially be exploited by a local user to overwrite files with the
rights of the user running emacs.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 1.14.3-9woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your flim package.
