Package        : fcheck
Vulnerability  : insecure temporary file
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1753

Steve Kemp from the Debian Security Audit project discovered that
a cronjob contained in fcheck, a file integrity checker, creates
a temporary file in an insecure fashion.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.59-7sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.59-8

We recommend that you upgrade your fcheck 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.

  its next update.
