Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-27 11:32:03 EDT
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.

openldap contains shtool in its source.
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2005-05-27 11:43:58 EDT
Note that this issue can only be triggered when:

a) rebuilding the PHP source RPM
b) building a third-party PHP module

Proposing for inclusion in U2.

*** Bug 158997 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2005-05-27 12:58:47 EDT
Yes, we'll just include this in either U2 or our next security update.  No need
to roll new packages just for this.
