FreeBSD : MySQL insecure temporary file creation (mysqlbug) (2e129846-8fbb-11d8-8b29-0020ed76ef5a)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 37467
The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
Shaun Colley reports that the script `mysqlbug' included with MySQL sometimes creates temporary files in an unsafe manner. As a result, an attacker may create a symlink in /tmp so that if another user invokes `mysqlbug' and quits without making any changes, an arbitrary file may be overwritten with the bug report template.
