without taking appropriate precautions. This vulnerability could
potentially be exploited by a local user to overwrite files with the
rights of the user running emacs.

fixed in version 1.14.3-9woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your flim package.
