Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

emesenelib/ProfileManager.py in emesene before 1.6.2 allows local
users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the emsnpic
temporary file.

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.
