Prismstumbler 0.7.3 File Overwrite

Change Mirror Download
I found a symlink vuln in this older program.

Prismstumbler 0.7.3 is most often ran as root to utilize all of capabilities.

Prismstumbler (pst) creates /tmp/.psintercom and /tmp/spotkoord.txt as default. Can be changed within preferences.

srw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 2009-04-02 00:44 .psintercom
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2009-04-02 00:44 spotkoord.txt

The /tmp/spotkoord.txt file follows symlinks and zeros out linked file. While /tmp/.psintercom actually checks to see if it is there or not.

#
guy@Tengu:~/Tools$ sh tmp-racer.sh /tmp/spotkoord.txt sudo pst

Files /tmp/dir.31416/target and /tmp/dir.31416/original differ

Creation of root owned files. Or clobbering of root owned files.
