<description>
<p>
Temporary files are handled insecurely in the files
wml_backend/p1_ipp/ipp.src, wml_contrib/wmg.cgi, and
wml_backend/p3_eperl/eperl_sys.c, allowing users to overwrite or delete
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the program.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Local users can exploit the insecure temporary file vulnerabilities via
symlink attacks to perform certain actions with escalated privileges.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
Restrict access to the temporary directory to trusted users only.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Website META Language users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-lang/wml-2.0.11-r3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
