See: If a security boundary is crossed then yup. E.g. you can monkey with the programs log files/config/etc. (cover up attacks/etc.) or possibly crash the program/cause a dos (forcing it to append/process huge files, etc.). Alternatively you can use the directory to stash files (and typically the admin only expects /tmp/, /var/tmp/) and so on. > http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=683649 > http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=683647 > > and I guess there might be more to come since it's the result of > piuparts tests run against the whole archive. Basically it's a lot like /tmp/ file creation issues. They are low level, rarely fatal, but they are security issues that need to be addressed. I'll do separate emails for them to make tracking easier. > Regards, > - -- Kurt Seifried Red Hat Security Response Team (SRT) PGP: 0x5E267993 A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJQHBKfAAoJEBYNRVNeJnmT3Z8QALhQ17t1psZCdrxvzW/aaBvx g5cwQEZjZWJkeFq+1GS+RHQ5wdtXdI0x7d5WhK0t4hQFPqcSyvzn+UJV2QFeXH+m F71i0IXt473Wa6G/XdkwQMYpzkF5FIkNHeKJAC4HOg1a3qsu2H8BKHl2fMKT7MDh HuZVOFVqVqZiqe3zNHEXfHbPebeJQEPATtROIncTAbPKXZnbc4Y+i6IEIwXLjZk0 jDm+O16CopmivuLopy8AxT6Z1z18fNigvevOQBjtiHRPR0S1giynV8/CUn5C5cBN BuhaVzYT/FkHE02ayeAEq4NApYdJbvBWGmo5mOg/hmchhVL00qBPeTOFCo1w72QM vxfGKCRHL4Cm1SvQraY+nOwl9sLBpEvSkpFUdrITBpF03muE9KMgo5DnyU5kKf4D 6mBDy+RCBWXMk8wC7tgaUSUJ1qKeW/hO2w/aKwSXkmsK8X3u8NzCS2ezUZva/Nk7 Y4UssGijN8wwQb52//Ab3mximiV3ucHDZlZOmGHNUpVSPrAmW3KES0dJMhyHiGh+ gR0E7lHrf5HA4XTH3/VLee9fWVNcY3D8FmyLEjixDtEGQub/ehiNV9DrZXrun+Jg XYLlzTBIXNeAmWHSnpOsTTGO6KI45SxcJEe0jrcDlhQXv2ygDohiYZxik6jDQeKc kycbiI0+K4QCEKd/7X1v =t7K3 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
