Description Josh Bressers 2005-08-11 16:18:36 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 for RHEL4 contains shtool in its source.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-08-11 16:40:54 EDT
The shtool in openldap does not exercise the code path which contains this bug.
