Description David Eisenstein 2006-02-05 03:49:30 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #165606 +++

Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several tempfile handling
related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml, a conversion script for kvoctrain. The
script must be manually invoked.

The script uses known filenames in /tmp which allow an local attacker to
overwrite files writeable by the user invoking the conversion script.

This issue should also affect FC3
