[Numpy-discussion] numpy ticket #852 (temporary files in savez)
Tue Oct 28 03:46:44 CDT 2008
I looked at this ticket and whipped up two alternative patches, like mentioned in
the description: in-memory or temporary dir on disk. On my computer
the second one is slightly faster.
I think it is important to merge some version of this fix. In it's current form,
someone using numpy.io.savez() allows any user on the same system to overwrite
arbitrary files with his permissions.
