    If you read the changelog you will see it. Search for the word "securetmp"

    securetmp creates a filesystem in a file so to speak. For those who do not have a parition for the /tmp directory. The advantages of this is that you can now set the partition to noexec so that users can not execute files that are in /tmp.

    This isn't perfect, but it's a good speedbump.

    There's a bit more on this here:
