Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

A local attacker could exploit Audacity's insecure handling of the
directory for temporary files to conduct symlink attacks in order to
delete arbitrary files and directories with the privileges of the user
running Audacity.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
