Id Description
11123 Netatalk etc2ps.sh Symlink Arbitrary File Modification

The Netatalk etc2ps.sh script contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to overwrite files with the permissions of the user running the script. The issue is due to the fact that the script creates world-writeable symlinks with predictable filenames; attackers can simply change the file the symlink points to in order to overwrite files with their own data, resulting in a loss of integrity.
