<title>fbida: Insecure temporary file creation</title>
fbida is vulnerable to linking attacks, potentially allowing a local user
to overwrite arbitrary files.

fbida is a collection of image viewers and editors for the
framebuffer console and X11.
Jan Braun has discovered that the "fbgs" script provided by fbida
insecurely creates temporary files in the "/var/tmp" directory.
<impact type="normal">
A local attacker could create links in the temporary file
directory, pointing to a valid file somewhere on the filesystem. When
an affected script is called, this could result in the file being
overwritten with the rights of the user running the script.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All fbida users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-gfx/fbida-2.03-r3&quot;</code>
