Synopsis
=======
A vulnerability has been discovered in Hugin, potentially allowing for
a Denial of Service.

Background
=========
Hugin is a GUI for creating and processing panoramic images.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package          /    Vulnerable    /                  Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-gfx/hugin     < 0.7_beta4-r1                   *>= 0.6.1-r1
                                                       >= 0.7_beta4-r1

Description
==========
Suse Linux reported that Hugin creates the
"hugin_debug_optim_results.txt" temporary file in an insecure manner.

Impact
=====
A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability with a symlink
attack, potentially overwriting an arbitrary file with the privileges
of the user running the application.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All Hugin users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/hugin-0.6.1-r1"
