Subject: CVE Request -- android-tools (server): Insecure temporary file used
 for logging

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

  Christoph Biedl in Debian bug report [1] noticed the
following deficiency:

An insecure temporary file use flaw was found in the way
server component of android tools, a suite of Android Debug
Bridge (ADB) platform tools, performed logging of server
events upon server startup. A local attacker could use this
flaw to conduct symbolic links attacks, possibly leading to
their ability to append unauthorized content to system files
accessible with the privileges of the user running the adb


Could you allocate a CVE id for this?

Thank you && Regards, Jan.
