A security issue fixed upstream in pcmanfm has been announced:

Mageia 5 is probably also affected.

The updated package fixes a security vulnerability:

PCManFM 1.2.5 insecurely uses /tmp for a socket file, allowing a local user to cause a denial of service (application unavailability). (CVE-2017-8934)

Is it ok to continue?

I opened it from the terminal and opened some files - it is working properly.

opened via menu - tools - system tools - working as designed.
