Use CVE-2013-7109 for this report about OpenStack Swift. Again,

product.

I don't think this was intended as a CVE request. The OpenStack
VMT had already determined this was non-exploitable in Swift over
the course of https://launchpad.net/bugs/1192966 and explicitly
decided not to request a CVE nor issue an advisory.


Sorry yeah I should have been more clear, I was trying to show that
it's a pretty common coding pattern to use /tmp for PYTHON_EGG_CACHE,
that specific instance was a bad one (it's about the only example
where it isn't actually a vulnerability =).
