CVE-2008-2827 perl: insecure use of chmod in rmtree
Last modified: 2008-07-28 02:49:44 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-2827 to the following vulnerability:
The rmtree function in lib/File/Path.pm in Perl 5.10 does not properly
check permissions before performing a chmod, which allows local users
to modify the permissions of arbitrary files via a symlink attack, a
different vulnerability than CVE-2005-0448 and CVE-2004-0452.
