Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77253
An insecure use of a temporary file has been found in Python.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:52 EST
Zack Weinberg discovered os._execvpe from os.py in Python 2.2.1 and earlier
creates temporary files with predictable names, which could allow local
users to execute arbitrary code via a symlink attack.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files, please follow the link below. You may reopen
this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
