How to close find security bug?

The entries in /etc/cron.daily/standard to clean up /var/tmp et.al
had been removed due to an easily to be exploited security hole having
to do with building a lot of symlinks etc.

- Can someone point me to a description of the security hole (I once
  had an URL but lost it)
- Is there a safe variant of this functionality available?
