Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE Request (minor) -- gnash -- Unsafe management of HTTP cookies Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors, a security flaw was found in the way Shockwave Flash plug-in of the gnash, a GNU flash movie player, performed management of HTTP cookies (they were stored under /tmp directory with predictable name and world- readable permissions). A local attacker could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information. References:  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=649384  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755518 Could you allocate a CVE id for this? Thank you && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
