<unaffected range="ge">0.9.22</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">0.9.22</vulnerable>
<p>PulseAudio is a sound system for POSIX OSes.</p>
<p>The pa_make_secure_dir function in core-util.c does not handle temporary
files securely.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All PulseAudio users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-sound/pulseaudio-0.9.22"
