|Gangstuck and Psirac have reported some vulnerabilities in openMosixview, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions on a vulnerable system with escalated privileges.|
The vulnerabilities are caused due to various temporary files being created insecurely with predictable filenames. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to create or overwrite arbitrary files on the system with the privileges of the user running openmosixview or the openmosixcollector daemon.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in versions 1.5 and prior.
Grant only trusted users access to affected systems.
