 man-db (2.3.10-69FIX.1) stable; urgency=low
   * In man-db -69FIX.1:
    * Added unlink of temporary file between call to tempnam and open to
      reduce (without completely avoiding it) the possibility that a
      malicious user puts a dangling symlink to let man leave a file
      (with a manpage inside :-) in places different that the temporary
      directory. Not a security risk at all, IMO.
    * Added secure open of temporary file in zsoelim.l , thanx to
      Marc Heuse <marc@suse.de>. The code was not secure against a
      symlink attack. This didn't affect 'man', which does not excute
      that part of the code, but only manual execution of zsoelim.
   * In man-db -69:	(Sun, 29 Nov 1998 01:01:54 +0200)
    * Corrected wrong set of terminal modes even when "not-a-tty".
      (thanx to Alessandro Rubini for the report)
