Vulnerability CVE-2007-6061


Published: 2007-11-20   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Audacity 1.3.2 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. NOTE: this issue can be leveraged to delete arbitrary files or directories via a symlink attack.

Type:
