958618: CVE-2013-2035 HawtJNI: predictable temporary file name leading to local arbitrary code execution
The HawtJNI Library class wrote native libraries to a predictable file name in /tmp when the native libraries were bundled in a JAR file, and no custom library path was specified. A local attacker could overwrite these native libraries with malicious versions during the window between when HawtJNI writes them and when they are executed.
