Package: make
Vulnerability type: symlink attack
Debian-specific: no

The make package as shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 is vulnerable to a
race condition that can be exploited with a symlink attack. make used
mktemp while creating temporary files in /tmp. and that is a known
potential security hole, as documented in the man page of mktemp.

This has been fixed in version 3.77-5slink. We recommend you upgrade
your make package immediately.

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.
