[GLSA-200604-13] fbida: Insecure temporary file creation

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
fbida: Insecure temporary file creation

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-13
(fbida: Insecure temporary file creation)


Jan Braun has discovered that the "fbgs" script provided by fbida
insecurely creates temporary files in the "/var/tmp" directory.

Impact

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.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
