What it does#
Checks for the use of hardcoded temporary file or directory paths.
Why is this bad?#
The use of hardcoded paths for temporary files can be insecure. If an attacker discovers the location of a hardcoded path, they can replace the contents of the file or directory with a malicious payload.
Other programs may also read or write contents to these hardcoded paths, causing unexpected behavior.
