Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-22 17:58:40 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #155742 +++

Race condition in bzip2 1.0.2 and earlier allows local users to modify
permissions of arbitrary files via a hard link attack on a file while it is
being decompressed, whose permissions are changed by bzip2 after the
decompression is complete.
