Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-18 (Minitube: Insecure temporary file usage)

Tomáš Pružina reported that Minitube does not handle temporary files       securely.

Impact :

A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary       files with the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
