Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-22 19:58:36 UTC
Race condition in Core Utilities (coreutils) 5.2.1, when (1) mkdir, (2) mknod,
or (3) mkfifo is running with the -m switch, allows local users to modify
permissions of other files.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-04-22 20:00:33 UTC
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3
