Ampache is a PHP based tool for managing, updating and playing audio
files via a web interface.
Dmitry E. Oboukhov reported an insecure temporary file usage within the script.
<impact type="normal">
A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Ampache users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/ampache-3.4.3&quot;</code>
