Subject: TMP flaw in rackspace jclouds?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

https://github.com/rackspace/jclouds/

So CC'ing Andrew, he's a consistent contributor, I can't file an issue
in Github (no link to it) so posting here and CC'ing him.

https://github.com/rackspace/jclouds/blob/master/scriptbuilder/src/main/java/org/jclouds/scriptbuilder/domain/Statements.java

  public static Statement extractTargzAndFlattenIntoDirectory(URI tgz,
String dest) {
      return new StatementList(ImmutableSet.<Statement> builder()
            .add(exec("mkdir /tmp/$$"))
            .add(extractTargzIntoDirectory(tgz, "/tmp/$$"))
            .add(exec("mkdir -p " + dest))
            .add(exec("mv /tmp/$$/*/* " + dest))
            .add(exec("rm -rf /tmp/$$")).build());
   }


This is insecure, $$ == PID == predictable

http://www.veracode.com/blog/2009/01/how-boring-flaws-become-interesting/
