impose+-0.2-alt2.noarch unsafe-tmp-usage-in-scripts fail The test discovered scripts with errors which may be used by a user for damaging important system files. For example if a script uses in its work a temp file which is created in /tmp directory, then every user can create symlinks with the same name (pattern) in this directory in order to destroy or rewrite some system or another user's files. Scripts _must_ _use_ mktemp/tempfile or must use $TMPDIR. mktemp/tempfile is safest. $TMPDIR is safer than /tmp/ because libpam-tmpdir creates a subdirectory of /tmp that is only accessible by that user, and then sets TMPDIR and other variables to that. Hence, it doesn't matter nearly as much if you create a non-random filename, because nobody but you can access it. Found error in /usr/bin/impose: $ grep -A5 -B5 /tmp/ /usr/bin/impose $ybot=30 unless $ybot; $pages=6 unless defined $pages; $rotdir="L" unless $rotdir; $filename = shift or do { $filename = "/tmp/$ENV{USER}"; open(TMP, ">$filename"); while(<>) { print TMP; } close(TMP); $do_stdout++; $do_erase_tmp++; -- $_=; @oddbbox=split; $_=; @evenbbox=split; @oddbbox = @evenbbox unless @evenbbox; close(BB); } elsif ($lastbbox && -e "/tmp/bboxx-$ENV{USER}") { open(BB,"/tmp/bboxx-$ENV{USER}"); $_=; @oddbbox=split; $_=; @evenbbox=split; close(BB); # print "oddbbox = @oddbbox\n"; # print "evenbbox = @evenbbox\n"; -- } @evenbbox = @oddbbox if $noevenodd; # record the bboxx information open(BB, ">/tmp/bboxx-$ENV{USER}"); print BB "@oddbbox\n@evenbbox\n"; close(BB); # Do page calculations $oddwidth = $oddbbox[2]-$oddbbox[0];
