FreeBSD : kdelibs insecure temporary file handling (603fe36d-ec9d-11d8-b913-000c41e2cdad)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 24307
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

According to a KDE Security Advisory, KDE may sometimes create temporary files without properly checking the ownership and type of the target path. This could allow a local attacker to cause KDE applications to overwrite arbitrary files.

Solution

Update the affected package.
