CAN-2004-0975 temporary file vulnerabilities in der_chop script
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
On September 10th 2004, Trustix shared some temporary file
vulnerabilities with vendor-sec. After some refinement these were
made public on Sep30. These are minor issues (impact: LOW) and
therefore should be fixed in future updates, but don't deserve their
own security advisory.
Temporary file vulnerability in der_chop script. Patch attached.
However der_chop isn't a useful script and is deprecated. Removing
der_chop script is a valid solution to this issue.
Proposed patch is attachment 105431 [details].
We're quite happy to have these fixed in future updates as required
and not to issue a RHSA especially for this issue.
Of course, but is it worth to release it in U7 update? I'd rather wait
for another problem to appear and then include it.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

if the solution does not work for you.
