DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been reported in emesene, which can be exploited
by malicious, local users to manipulate certain data and potentially
gain escalated privileges.

The security issue is caused due to the application using a temporary
file ("/tmp/emsnpic") in an insecure manner, which can be exploited to
e.g. overwrite arbitrary files via symlink attacks.

The security issue is reported in version 1.6.1. Prior versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.6.2.
