Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Tunapie, a GUI frontend to video and radio streams. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

  • CVE-2009-1253

    Kees Cook discovered that insecure handling of temporary files may lead to local denial of service through symlink attacks.

  • CVE-2009-1254
