Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-19 11:06:47 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].
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2005-01-26 09:44:07 EST
We're quite happy to have these fixed in future updates as required
and not to issue a RHSA especially for this issue.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2005-01-26 09:56:25 EST
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.
Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2005-06-01 09:32:43 EDT
