Currently the SecurityFocus staff are not aware of any vendor supplied patches for this issue. If you feel we are in error or are aware of more recent information, please mail us at:

It has been indicated that this problem will not be suitably fixed until Emacs 21. A temporary solution is to define alternate temporary directories for modes which use temporary files. This is defined on a per-module basis.
