A flaw was found in abrt, where a local attacker could obtain the SHA1SUM of a file they should have no access to.


This issue was discovered by Jan Pokorný of Red Hat.
Comment 6 Vincent Danen 2013-08-06 19:57:13 EDT

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of abrt as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Comment 15 Stefan Cornelius 2013-09-06 05:12:43 EDT
Time to open this up.

We now ship the fixed version 2.1.6 on all previously affected products.

In upstream commit https://github.com/abrt/abrt/commit/776209bd00b0dd16d02dd20fdb14eecbb6b9fa18 the format of core backtraces changed significantly. Source file hashes are no longer included for python exception reports.
