Title: Apache Ant: Insecure temporary file (GLSA 202011-18)
Apache Ant uses various insecure temporary files possibly allowing
local code execution.
Ant is a Java-based build tool similar to ‘make’ that uses XML
Vulnerable: < 1.10.9
Unaffected: >= 1.10.9
Architectures: All supported architectures
A previous fix for a security vulnerability involving insecure temporary
files has been found to be incomplete.
A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Apache Ant users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/ant-1.10.9"
