Description Matthias Saou 2004-09-29 11:06:05 UTC
Description of problem:
The current FC devel bind-chroot uses a hardcoded path of /tmp/named
in its scriplet, which is a predictable name that can lead to security
concerns. Using mktemp instead should be considered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
bind-chroot-9.2.4-1

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qp --scripts bind-chroot-9.2.4-1.i386.rpm | grep tmp
  
Actual results:
grep -v '^ROOTDIR='/var/named/chroot /etc/sysconfig/named > /tmp/named
mv -f /tmp/named /etc/sysconfig/named

Expected results:
Seeing something like TMP=$(mktemp /tmp/named.XXXXXX) then using $TMP.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-09-29 13:59:02 UTC
Yes, this is the way bind-chroot always has done sysconfig/named
editing. 
The next version will use mktemp .
