Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Update Information:

Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several
tempfile handling related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml,
a conversion script for kvoctrain. The script must be
manually invoked.

The script uses known filenames in /tmp which permit an local
attacker to overwrite files writeable by the user invoking the
conversion script.

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.
