Affected versions
2007.0 x86_64 , 2007.0 i586

Problem description

Sebastian Krahmer of the SUSE security team found that the
System.CodeDom.Compiler classes in mono used temporary files in an
insecure way that could allow a symbolic link attack to overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running a program that
made use of those classes.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
