[SECURITY] Fedora 9 Update: xastir-1.9.2-9.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-7541
2008-09-05 10:50:44
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : xastir
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 1.9.2
Release     : 9.fc9
URL         : http://www.xastir.org
Summary     : Amateur Station Tracking and Reporting system for amateur radio
Description :
Xastir is a graphical application that interfaces HAM radio
and internet access to realtime mapping software.

Install XASTIR if you are interested in APRS(tm) and HAM radio
software.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Multiple insecure temporary file usage flaws were identified in the get-
maptools.sh and get_shapelib.sh scripts shipped in xastir packages.    As those
scripts are not needed with Fedora-distributed xastir packages (they automate
installation of libraries used by xastir, which are provided in the Fedora
archive in the pre-packaged RPM format), they were removed.
