Bacula Insecure Temporary File Creation Vulnerabilities

Bacula creates temporary files in an insecure manner.

An attacker with local access could potentially exploit this issue to view files and obtain privileged information. The attacker may also perform symlink attacks, overwriting arbitrary files in the context of the affected application.

Exploitation would most likely result in loss of confidentiality and theft of privileged information. Successful exploitation of a symlink attack may result in sensitive configuration files being overwritten. This may result in a denial of service; other attacks may also be possible.
