        Immunix OS Security Advisory

Packages updated:       sgml-tools
Affected products:      Immunix OS 6.2, 7.0-beta, and 7.0

Description:
Previous versions of the sgml-tools package would create temporary files without any special permissions in the /tmp directory. This could allow any user to read files that were being created by any other user.

Packages have been created and released that fix these problems.
