Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159000
CAN-2005-1751 shtool insecure temporary file creation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:18 EST
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.
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.

Yes, we'll just include this in either U2 or our next security update. No need
to roll new packages just for this.
