instant messenger client, creates some temporary files with
predictable filenames and is hence vulnerable to symlink attacks by
local attackers.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.20.0-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
