Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-25 11:27:05 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #158769 +++

fixproc in Net-snmp 5.x before 5.2.1-r1 creates temporary files insecurely,
which allows local users to modify the contents of those files to execute
arbitrary commands, or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-05-25 11:27:51 EDT
We should also fix this in FC4
Comment 2 Radek Vokal 2005-05-31 07:12:32 EDT
Patch applied on rawhide. FC3 update will appear later.
