Debian: New tunapie packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tunapie, a GUI frontend to video and radio streams. Kees Cook discovered that insecure handling of temporary files may lead to local denial of service through symlink attacks. Mike Coleman discovered that insufficient escaping of stream URLs may lead to the execution of arbitrary commands if a user is tricked into opening a malformed stream URL. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

For the old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed

be released synchronously with the stable (lenny) version, but will
appear soon.
