 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:074
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : audacity
 Date    : March 20, 2008
 Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0, Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 Audacity creates a temporary directory with a predictable name without
 checking for previous existence of that directory, which allows local
 users to cause a denial of service (recording deadlock) by creating
 the directory before Audacity is run. This issue can also be leveraged
 to delete arbitrary files or directories via a symlink attack.
 
 The updated package fixes the issue.
