CVE-2009-5080

Status Candidate

Overview

The (1) contrib/eqn2graph/eqn2graph.sh, (2) contrib/grap2graph/grap2graph.sh, and (3) contrib/pic2graph/pic2graph.sh scripts in GNU troff (aka groff) 1.21 and earlier do not properly handle certain failed attempts to create temporary directories, which might allow local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a file in a temporary directory, a different vulnerability than CVE-2004-1296.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-086 - contrib/pdfmark/pdfroff.sh in GNU troff before 1.21 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a pdf#####.tmp temporary file. The contrib/gdiffmk/tests/runtests.in scripts in GNU troff 1.21 and earlier allow local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a gro#####.tmp or /tmp/##### temporary file. The contrib/eqn2graph/eqn2graph.sh, contrib/pic2graph/pic2graph.sh scripts in GNU troff 1.21 and earlier do not properly handle certain failed attempts to create temporary directories, which might allow local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a file in a temporary directory, a different vulnerability than CVE-2004-1296. The contrib/groffer/perl/roff2.pl scripts in GNU troff 1.21 and earlier use an insufficient number of X characters in the template argument to the tempfile function, which makes it easier for local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a temporary file, a different vulnerability than CVE-2004-0969. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
