Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-0044-01 - Augeas is a utility for editing configuration. Augeas parses configuration files in their native formats and transforms them into a tree. Configuration changes are made by manipulating this tree and saving it back into native configuration files. Augeas also uses "lenses" as basic building blocks for establishing the mapping from files into the Augeas tree and back. A flaw was found in the way Augeas handled certain umask settings when creating new configuration files. This flaw could result in configuration files being created as world writable, allowing unprivileged local users to modify their content.

3. Description:

Augeas is a utility for editing configuration. Augeas parses configuration
files in their native formats and transforms them into a tree.
Configuration changes are made by manipulating this tree and saving it back
into native configuration files. Augeas also uses "lenses" as basic
building blocks for establishing the mapping from files into the Augeas
tree and back.

A flaw was found in the way Augeas handled certain umask settings when
creating new configuration files. This flaw could result in configuration
files being created as world writable, allowing unprivileged local users to
modify their content. (CVE-2013-6412)

This issue was discovered by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

All augeas users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications
using augeas must be restarted for the update to take effect.
