insecure temporary file creation

I just wanted to bring this to that attention of those who care...

Because there were quite a few insecure temp file creation reports a while
ago, perhaps some of us should use this tool to find more ASAP.

It was in the fresh meat mailing list:

Eliott is a tool to help system administrators and programmers discover
insecure temporary file creation, even in closed-source applications. It
watches a directory for file creation/deletion/writes using the dnotify
facility of Linux 2.4.x . Every change is logged, even temporary files with
a very short lifetime. In addition to logging, Eliott can simulate
hard-link exploits in order to find and report vulnerable applications.
