So for the sake of starting a conversation about tmp vulns on systems that shouldn't have any users or ways to exploit the tmp vuln I'm posting this one. Basically if a tree falls in the forest but no beavers were present does anyone care that a lumber jack might get squashed? https://pypi.python.org/pypi/headintheclouds headintheclouds-0.5.2/headintheclouds/tasks.py remote_scripts_directory = '/tmp/bootstrap_scripts' sudo('mkdir -p %s' % remote_scripts_directory) for path in sorted(scripts): filename = os.path.basename(path) remote_script = '%s/%s' % (remote_scripts_directory, filename) put('bootstrap/%s' % filename, remote_script, use_sudo=True) run('source %s' % remote_script) -- Kurt Seifried -- Red Hat -- Product Security -- Cloud PGP A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (820 bytes)
