Description

Secunia reports:

A security issue has been reported in Ampache, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated privileges. The security issue is caused due to the "gather-messages.sh" script handling temporary files in an insecure manner. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the script.
