Description Vincent Danen 2013-01-07 17:15:42 EST
Michael Scherer reported that the fedora-business-cards script used /tmp/fedora-business-cards-buffer.svg as a temporary file, which could be used in symlink attacks to overwrite the contents of a file with write permissions to the person running fedora-business-cards.
