The internal_dump function in Mathopd before 1.5p5, and 1.6x before 1.6b6 BETA, when Mathopd is running with the -n option, allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on dump files that are triggered by a SIGWINCH signal.

Id Description
14935 Mathopd internal_dump() Arbitrary File Append

Mathopd contains a flaw that may allow a malicious local user to append content to arbitrary files on the system. The issue is due to the internal_dump() function (dump.c) creating temporary files insecurely when a SIGWINCH signal is caught. It is possible for a local attacker to use a symlink attack to cause the program to unexpectedly append dump data to an attacker specified file.
