chkstat in SuSE Linux 9.0 through 10.0 allows local users to modify permissions of files by creating a hardlink to a file from a world-writable directory, which can cause the link count to drop to 1 when the file is deleted or replaced, which is then modified by chkstat to use weaker permissions.

Id Description
20263 SUSE Permissions Bypass chkstat Arbitrary File Access

SUSE LINUX's permissions package contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized access control bypass. The issue is triggered when a malicious user creates a hardlink in certain world-writable directories before chkstat is run. chkstat will then set the target file with the permissions intended for the original file, resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
