Name        : arts
Product : Fedora 22
Version : 1.5.10
Release : 30.fc22
URL : http://www.kde.org
Summary : aRts (analog realtime synthesizer) - the KDE sound system
Description :
arts (analog real-time synthesizer) is the sound system of KDE 3.

The principle of arts is to create/process sound using small modules which do
certain tasks. These may be create a waveform (oscillators), play samples,
filter data, add signals, perform effects like delay/flanger/chorus, or
output the data to the soundcard.

By connecting all those small modules together, you can perform complex
tasks like simulating a mixer, generating an instrument or things like
playing a wave file with some effects.

Update Information:

Security fix for CVE-2015-7543 in arts (the legacy aRts sound server): A
temporary directory was being created insecurely using mktemp and mkdir,
allowing an attacker to hijack the temporary directory and thus the inter-
process communication (IPC). This update fixes the temporary directory creation
to use the safe mkdtemp function instead.

[ 1 ] Bug #1280543 - CVE-2015-7543 arts,kdelibs3: Use of mktemp(3) allows
attacker to hijack the IPC

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update arts' at the command line.
