Open Source Vulnerability Database (OSVDB)

Id Description
15487 gzip Race Condition Arbitrary File Permission Modification

gzip contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered when an attacker has write access to a directory in which a targeted user is using gzip to decompress a file, and will gain the ability to modify the permissions on any file owned by the targeted user. This flaw may lead to a loss of integrity.
