Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-11-25 07:55:26 EST
The flaw in vimspell seems to be present in the upstream 6.4 but the patch 
vim-6.3-tmpfile.patch included in fc4 is no longer included.  Please check to
see if this flaw is valid for the fc5test1 packages and close if not.

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.
