Two insecure temporary file vulns have been reported to the debian BTS.
The issues refer to the usage of temporary files using the process PID as the
"randomness". I would not be surprised if this isn't the only scripts in vim
that do this.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
