GLSA-201203-18 : Minitube: Insecure temporary file usage
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59610
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-18 (Minitube: Insecure temporary file usage)
Tomáš Pružina reported that Minitube does not handle temporary files securely.
A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Minitube users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-video/minitube-1.6' NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since November 11, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
