Subject: CVE Request: IPTables-Parse: Use of predictable names for temporary


IPTables-Parse up to 1.6 used temporary files in insecure way, since
it used predictable filenames. This issue was fixed in 1.6 with the
following commit:

Upstream Changelog:
> (Miloslav Trma─Ź) Fixed a vulnerability to not use predictable names
> for temporary files. This vulnerability would allow an attacker on a
> multi- user system to set up symlinks to overwrite any file the
> current user has write access to. If a user manually overrides the
> temporary file locations with the 'iptout' and 'ipterr' hash keys,
> it is recommended to not use predictable names either.

Can a CVE be assigned for this issue?
