exec/key-handler uses temporary files insecurely.
Could you give me some info about this? I am confused, please point me out to some useful url, thanks

The code in question does:

readonly TMPFILE="/tmp/sxiv.$$"
# ...
       cat >"$TMPFILE"

So the file name is predictable, which means another local user could easily create file with the same name. Moreover, contrary to Policy §10.4, the script doesn't fail when the file already exist.

The correct way to create temporary files in shell scripts is to use mktemp(1).

This is only an example script, which doesn't work out of the box on Debian systems anyway (because we don't have iptckwed packaged), so I uploaded the package. But please bring this issue upstream.
