Name        : audacity
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.3.2
Release     : 21.fc8
URL         : http://audacity.sourceforge.net
Summary     : A multitrack audio editor
Description :
Audacity is a cross-platform multitrack audio editor. It allows you to
record sounds directly or to import Ogg, WAV, AIFF, AU, IRCAM, or MP3
files. It features a few simple effects, all of the editing features
you should need, and unlimited undo. The GUI was built with wxWindows
and the audio I/O currently uses OSS under Linux. Audacity runs on
Linux/*BSD, MacOS, and Windows.

Update Information:

A local attacker could exploit Audacity's insecure handling of the directory for
temporary files to conduct symlink attacks in order to delete arbitrary files
and directories with the privileges of the user running Audacity.
