Detail

The "make distcheck" rule in GNU Automake before 1.11.6 and 1.12.x before 1.12.2 grants world-writable permissions to the extraction directory, which introduces a race condition that allows local users to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

Title: RHSA-2014:1243: automake security update (Low)
Description: Automake is a tool for automatically generating Makefile.in files compliant with the GNU Coding Standards. It was found that the distcheck rule in Automake-generated Makefiles made a directory world-writable when preparing source archives. If a malicious, local user could access this directory, they could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running "make distcheck". (CVE-2012-3386) Red Hat would like to thank Jim Meyering for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Stefano Lattarini as the original reporter. All automake users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
