Fedora 7 : audacity-1.3.2-21.fc7 (2008-3511)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 32202
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected audacity package.
