Internet Security Systems (ISS) X-Force has identified a vulnerability in the makewhatis Bourne shell script that ships with many Linux distributions. It is found in versions 1.5e and higher of man, and handles temporary files insecurely. Local users may gain a variety of privileges depending on the complexity of the exploit. The mode of any file on the system can be changed to 0700. Any file on the system may be created or overwritten as root. Local users may also be able to read any system file by forcing a copy of it into the whatis database.
