Description David Lawrence 2005-03-30 23:29:38 UTC

A vulnerability has been reported in Kerberos V5, which can be exploited by
malicious, local users to perform certain actions on a vulnerable system with
escalated privileges.

The vulnerability is caused due to the "" script creating temporary
files insecurely. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to create or
overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user invoking the
vulnerable script.

The vulnerability has been reported in versions 1.3.4 and 1.3.5 for Linux. Other
versions may also be affected.

These are tackled in #2040, so I'll close this in order to not duplicate work.
