===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-208-1           October 17, 2005
graphviz vulnerability
CAN-2005-2965
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

graphviz

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.2-1ubuntu0.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered that the "dotty" tool
created and used temporary files in an insecure way. A local attacker
could exploit this with a symlink attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running dotty.
