Description

Ben Burton notified the KDE security team about several tempfile handling related vulnerabilities in langen2kvtml, a conversion script for kvoctrain. The script must be manually invoked.

The script uses known filenames in /tmp which allow an local attacker to overwrite files writeable by the user invoking the conversion script.

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
