Last modified: 2016-04-02 05:29:19 EDT
A vulnerability in gummi was found that uses predictable filenames in /tmp based on basename. When multiple users opens file with the same name, they could write to the same file. Attacker could also create symlinks such that the users could unintentionally overwrite some of their files. Although this case of attack depends on the configuration of /proc/sys/fs/protected_symlinks.
