"Users of WordPerfect 8 for Linux, take note: There's a fly in the ointment. Unless you're working on a non-networked computer, a recently discovered bug could allow unwanted access to your files."
"The problem: By replacing your standard WordPerfect 8 temporary files with symbolic links to files on another computer, someone else could gain access to your data. That's be cause Word Perfect 8, if installed as a root application, won't detect the symbolic links, but will follow them and use the remote linked files as temporaries, overwriting them with your working data."
