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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 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)
