Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Peter Samuelson, upstream maintainer of bmv, a PostScript viewer for
SVGAlib, discovered that temporary files are created in an insecure

overwritten by a symlink attack.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 1.2-14.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2-17.
We recommend that you upgrade your bmv packages.
