Description Mark J. Cox 2003-07-22 05:00:52 EDT
ddskk does not take appropriate security precautions when creating
temporary files. This bug could potentially be exploited to overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Emacs and skk.  

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has allocated
the name CAN-2003-0539 to this issue.

Public 8 July 2003.
