Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Moritz Muehlenhoff discovered the handler code for backupninja creates
a temporary file with a predictable filename, leaving it vulnerable to
a symlink attack.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the backupninja package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.5-3sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your backupninja package.
