CVE-2005-3340
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

The following packages are affected:

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to

sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

script created a temporary file in an insecure way. This could allow a
symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the
privileges of the user running tuxpaint.
