Description Mark J. Cox 2005-06-16 08:01:25 EDT
Secunia contacted secalert@redhat.com about a temporary file flaw in Adobe
Acrobat Reader which lets you view other users pdf files.

"Under certain circumstances, it creates temporary files of opened documents
insecurely in /tmp with permissions based on the user's umask."

This issue is fixed in 7.0

Currently embargoed, date to be determined by Secunia

Also affects RHEL3 Extras

Now part of an async update, removing from U2 tracker and making public as no
longer embargoed.
