GLSA-200604-13 : fbida: Insecure temporary file creation

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-13
(fbida: Insecure temporary file creation)

Jan Braun has discovered that the 'fbgs' script provided by fbida
insecurely creates temporary files in the '/var/tmp' directory.

Impact :

A local attacker could create links in the temporary file
directory, pointing to a valid file somewhere on the filesystem. When
an affected script is called, this could result in the file being
overwritten with the rights of the user running the script.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All fbida users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/fbida-2.03-r3'

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 1.2
