That's not a security issue, but a misconfiguration
I consider this a security bug in the debian package's maintainer
scripts: it is a race condition that leaks confidential information

Package post-install scripts are closer to configuration.

(alas, very common for Deb*an packages)
If you know of more bugs like this, please report them with an
e-mail to submit () bugs debian org with the first line "Package:
FOO" (where "FOO" is replaced by the name of the buggy package).

I know lots (even for MySQL, which we are discussing, I can recall
at least mysqldump producing trash, or several replication issues),
but I don't want to waste my time.
