Package        : eldav
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0438

eldav, a WebDAV client for Emacs, creates temporary files without
taking appropriate security precautions.  This vulnerability could be
exploited by a local user to create or overwrite files with the
privileges of the user running emacs and eldav.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.20020411-1woody1.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain an eldav

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.2-1.

We recommend that you update your eldav package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
