Gadu client, an instant messaging program.  The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

CAN-2005-1850

   Marcin Owsiany and Wojtek Kaniewski discovered insecure temporary
   file creation in contributed scripts.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain an ekg package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050411-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5+20050712+1.6rc2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ekg package.
