    Hey Dave, are you suggesting that no such exploits exist in Red Hat's
    rpm system? In order for that to be true, rpm would have to be making
    sure that each and every directory along any path that it writes is
    not writable except by priviledged users. I just checked, it doesn't.

    We should be using mktemp() to make temporary files, and if we don't
    that is a bug and I'd ask you to please submit a bugzilla entry about
    it if so because that would be a serious hole.
