Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Eric Romang discovered a temporary file vulnerability in a script

updated.
The old stable distribution (woody) as well as mysql-dfsg are not
affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.1.11a-4sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
