Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Kile: Incorrect backup file permission (GLSA 200611-21)
Severity: low
Exploitable: local
Date: November 27, 2006
Bug(s): #155613
ID: 200611-21

Synopsis

Kile uses default permissions for backup files, potentially leading to information disclosure.

Background

Kile is a TeX/LaTeX editor for KDE.

Affected Packages

Package: app-editors/kile
Vulnerable: < 1.9.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.9.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Kile fails to set the same permissions on backup files as on the original file. This is similar to CVE-2005-1920.

Impact

A kile user may inadvertently grant access to sensitive information.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Kile users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-editors/kile-1.9.2-r1"
