Updated ddskk packages which fix a temporary file security issue are now available.
Daredevil SKK is a simple Kana to Kanji conversion program, an input method of Japanese for Emacs and XEmacs. 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. All users of ddskk should upgrade to these erratum packages containing a backported security patch that corrects this issue.
