<background>
<p>pmake is Debian’s version of NetBSD’s make, a tool to build programs
in parallel.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>/usr/share/mk/bsd.lib.mk and /usr/share/mk/bsd.prog.mk create temporary
files insecurely, with predictable names (/tmp/_depend[PID]), and
without using $TMPDIR.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>The make include files allow local users to overwrite arbitrary files
via a symlink attack.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All pmake users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=sys-devel/pmake-1.111.3.1"
</code>
</resolution>
