This is subject to race conditions and allows local users to elevate their privileges by bypassing any of the KAuth checks. A followup of CVE-2013-4288. Discussion and patch can be found here: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=864716 Sebastian -- ~ perl self.pl ~ $_='print"\$_=\47$_\47;eval"';eval ~ krahmer@...e.de - SuSE Security Team
