Editing files in file-roller causes data loss

Bug #61878 reported by kuhi on 2006-09-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
File Roller
Fix Released
file-roller (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

When editing files in file-roller changes can be lost.

How to reproduce:

1. Double click zip file in nautilus (create one text file and archive it if needed)
2. Double click file in file-roller to open it up in an editor
3. Make some changes in file
4. Save changes (do not save in another folder)
5. Close editor and file-roller

Now changes will be effectively lost and cannot be retrieved back anymore.

Fix proposal:
Remove user write access on temporary directory created by file-roller (in /tmp directory)
