Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-15 10:59:03 EST
Trustix has discovered temporary file bugs in gzexe, zdiff and znew
which could allow a local user to overwrite arbitrary files by
creating specially named symlinks.

This issue also affects RHEL2.1
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2004-11-15 11:09:20 EST
We should also make sure we fix this in RHEL4 before it is released.
