  <revised>December 09, 2007: 01</revised>

    Lookup is a search interface to books and dictionnaries for Emacs.
    Tatsuya Kinoshita reported that the ndeb-binary function does not
    handle temporay files correctly.
  <impact type="normal">
    A local attacker could use a symlink attack to overwrite files with the
    privileges of the user running Lookup.
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    All Lookup users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-emacs/lookup-1.4.1&quot;</code>
