Package name sgml-tools
Date March 15th, 2001
Advisory ID MDKSA-2001:030
Affected versions 6.0, 6.1, 7.1, 7.2, CS1.0
Synopsis Updated sgml-tools packages fix insecure handling of temporary files

Problem Description

Insecure handling of temporary file permissions can lead to other users
on a multi-user system being able to read the documents being
converted. This is due to sgml-tools creating temporary files without
any special permissions. The updated packages create a secure
temporary directory first, which is readable only by the owner, and
then create the temporary files in that secure directory.
