      Description

      The mender-artifact "modify" command deletes the file "mender_test.img" if it is in the same directory as the artifact being modified. This can cause unexpected loss of data. Example:

      $ dir
      total 520K
      rw-rr- 1 don don 512K Sep 27 14:57 mender_test.img
      rw-rr- 1 don don 7.0K Sep 27 14:58 x.mender

      $ mender-artifact modify -n octopus x.mender

      $ dir
      total 8.0K
      rw------ 1 don don 7.0K Sep 27 15:08 x.mender

      I suspect the file is deleted because it has the same name as the embedded image file, and was overwritten for temporary usage during the modify operation.
