Description Vincent Danen 2014-03-28 22:19:00 UTC
It was reported [1] that a patch added to Python 3.2 [2] caused a race condition where a file created could be created with world read/write permissions instead of the permissions dictated by the original umask of the process.  This could allow a local attacker that could win the race to view and edit files created by a program using this call.

Note that prior versions of Python, including 2.x, do not include the vulnerable _get_masked_mode() function that is used by os.makedirs() when exist_ok is set to True.
