[DSA118] DSA-118-1 xsane Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-118-1 xsane

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Tim Waugh found several insecure uses of temporary files in the xsane
program, which is used for scanning. This was fixed for Debian/stable
by moving those files into a securely created directory within the
/tmp directory.
This problem has been fixed in version 0.50-5.1 for the stable Debian
distribution and in version 0.84-0.1 for the testing and unstable
distribution of Debian.
We recommend that you upgrade your xsane package.
