[SECURITY] [DLA 366-1] arts security update

Package        : arts
Version        : 1.5.9-3+deb6u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-7543

It has been reported that arts uses the insecure mktemp() function
to create the temporary directory it uses to host user-specific sockets.
It is thus possible for another user to hijack this temporary directory
and gain IPC access it should not have.

In Debian 6 “Squeeze”, this issue has been addressed in arts
1.5.9-3+deb6u1 with the use of the safer mkdtemp() function.
We recommend that you upgrade your arts packages.

Other Debian releases do not have the arts package.
