How to fix?

There is no fixed version for Debian:11 m4.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream m4 package and not the m4 package as distributed by Debian:11. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

The (1) maketemp and (2) mkstemp builtin functions in GNU m4 before 1.4.11 do not quote their output when a file is created, which might allow context-dependent attackers to trigger a macro expansion, leading to unspecified use of an incorrect filename.
