      <unaffected range="ge">0.32-r1</unaffected>

    po4a is a set of tools for helping with the translation of
    documentation.
    </p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>
    The po4a development team reported a race condition in the gettextize()
    function when creating the file "/tmp/gettextization.failed.po".
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A local attacker could perform a symlink attack, possibly overwriting
    files with the permissions of the user running po4a.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All po4a users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/po4a-0.32-r1&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
