Synopsis
========

An insecure temporary file usage in Shadow may allow local users to
gain root privileges.

Background
==========

Shadow is a set of tools to deal with user accounts.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected

Description
===========

Paul Szabo reported a race condition in the "login" executable when
setting up tty permissions.

Impact
======

A local attacker belonging to the "utmp" group could use symlink
attacks to overwrite arbitrary files and possibly gain root privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Shadow users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=3Dsys-apps/shadow-4.1.2.2"
