Description Jeremy Katz 2008-07-15 16:58:44 UTC
On startup, firstaidkit creates a /tmp/firstaidkitbackup directory.  This is
then vulnerable to malicious processes creating a directory with the same name.

Comment 1 Joel Andres Granados 2008-08-07 17:18:19 UTC
commit 51a175634d24eec42ad5a7cbe23660b42a63470c fixes this.
