Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-06-03 09:18:46 EDT
It was found that fabric, a simple Pythonic remote deployment tool,
used insecure way for creation of temporary files, when uploading
template text files and project files to a remote system. A local attacker
could use this flaw to conduct symlink attacks to upload sensitive
information to remote host or to overwrite certain local system files.
