id3lib Insecure Temporary File Creation Vulnerability

The id3lib library creates temporary files in an insecure manner.

An attacker with local access could potentially exploit this issue to perform symlink attacks, overwriting arbitrary files in the context of applications using the affected library.

Successfully mounting a symbolic-link attack may allow the attacker to overwrite or corrupt sensitive files, which may result in a denial of service. Other attacks may also be possible.
