Also a note on fixing these issues: Python Simply use “mkstemp” from the “tempfile” module: http://docs.python.org/library/tempfile.html#tempfile.mkstemp I tried to find a LinuxMint security contact, nothing on the website (e.g. http://www.linuxmint.com/teams.php), someone suggested root@...uxmint.com, here's hoping they see it. -- Kurt Seifried Red Hat Security Response Team (SRT)
