Description

skk (Simple Kana to Kanji conversion program), 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.

ddskk is derived from the same code, and contains the same bug.
