Open Source Vulnerability Database (OSVDB)

Id Description
11125 OpenSSL der_chop Script Symlink Arbitrary File Modification

The OpenSSL der_chop 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 creation of world-writeable symlinks with predictable names; attackers may change where these links point, and thus specify the data that will be written, resulting in a loss of integrity.
