Package        : graphviz
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2965

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure tmporary file
creation in graphviz, a rich set of graph drawing tools, that can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary files by a local attacker.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem probably persists
but the package is non-free.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-1sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphviz package.
