+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #158997 +++
Race condition in shtool 2.0.1 and earlier allows local users to
create or modify arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the
.shtool.$$ temporary file.
php contains shtool in its source.
This issue should also affect FC4
Note that this issue can only be triggered when:
a) rebuilding the PHP source RPM
b) building a third-party PHP module
This issue alone is not worth issuing an update for; it can be deferred until
there is a new upstream release or some other more serious issue.
Fixed for FC4 in FEDORA-2005-518.
