An insecure temporary file usage has been reported in Minitube, possibly allowing symlink attacks.
Minitube is a Qt4 YouTube desktop client.
TomáÅ¡ PruÅ¾ina reported that Minitube does not handle temporary files securely.
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 Minitube users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/minitube-1.6"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since November 11, 2011. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
