TITLE:
Sun Solaris 10 Language Input Methods Security Issue

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA28931

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/28931/

CRITICAL:
Less critical

IMPACT:
Manipulation of data

WHERE:
Local system

OPERATING SYSTEM:
Sun Solaris 10
http://secunia.com/product/4813/

DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been reported in Sun Solaris, which can be
exploited by malicious, local users to modify certain files or
directories.

The problem is that the Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese,
Korean and Thai language input methods create world writable or
readable files and directories (e.g. ".iiim/le" and ".Xlocale") in a
user's home directory. This can be exploited to e.g. modify files and
directories in another user's home directory.

The security issue affects the following versions:
* Solaris 10 for the SPARC platform without patch 120412-08 and patch
120414-20
* Solaris 10 for the x86 platform without patch 120413-08 and patch
120415-20

SOLUTION:
Apply patches.

SPARC platform:
Solaris 10 with patch 120412-08 or later and patch 120414-20 or
later.

X86 platform:
Solaris 10 with patch 120413-08 or later and patch 120415-20 or
later.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by the vendor.
