FEDORA-EPEL-2014-4231 created by pghmcfc 5 years ago for Fedora EPEL 5
stable

Jakub Wilk discovered that perltidy's make_temporary_filename() function insecurely created temporary files via the use of the tmpnam() function. A local attacker could use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack. This update replaces the use of make_temporary_filename() with the more secure tempname() from the File::Temp module.
