Description Marian Rehak 2019-07-16 12:22:59 UTC
In GUI mode, deepin-clone before 1.1.3 creates a log file at the fixed path /tmp/.deepin-clone.log as root, and follows symlinks there. An unprivileged user can prepare a symlink attack there to create or overwrite files in arbitrary file system locations. The content is not attacker controlled.
