Description Mark J. Cox 2005-06-16 12:01:25 UTC
Secunia contacted about a temporary file flaw in Adobe
Acrobat Reader which lets you view other users pdf files.

"Under certain circumstances, it creates temporary files of opened documents
insecurely in /tmp with permissions based on the user's umask."

This issue is fixed in 7.0

Currently embargoed, date to be determined by Secunia

Also affects RHEL3 Extras
