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>
