Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-02-11 08:45:19 UTC
From ${URL} :

* Python Imaging Library:
Note that we have two slightly different kinds of problems here:
1) in and there's tempfile.mktemp() followed 
by open() in the same subprocess;
2) in and, temporary file name 
generated by tempfile.mktemp() is passed to an external process.
The latter kind is much easier to exploit, at least on some systems, 
because commandlines are not secret.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
