FreeBSD : id3lib -- insecure temporary file creation (15ec9123-7061-11dc-b372-001921ab2fa4)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Debian Bug report log reports :

When tagging file $foo, a temporary copy of the file is created, and
for some reason, libid3 doesn't use mkstemp but just creates
$foo.XXXXXX literally, without any checking.

This would silently truncate and overwrite an existing $foo.XXXXXX.
