NetCitadel Firewall Builder Script Generation Insecure Temporary File Creation Vulnerability

Firewall Builder creates temporary files in an insecure manner.

An attacker with local access could potentially exploit this issue to perform symbolic-link attacks, overwriting arbitrary files in the context of the affected application.

Successfully mounting a symlink attack may allow the attacker to delete or corrupt sensitive files or to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Firewall Builder 3.0.4, 3.0.5, and 3.0.6 are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
