[DSA836] DSA-836-1 cfengine2 Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-836-1 cfengine2

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure temporary file use
in cfengine2, a tool for configuring and maintaining networked
machines, that can be exploited by a symlink attack to overwrite
arbitrary files owned by the user executing cfengine, which is
probably root.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.14-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your cfengine2 package.
