|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Kile: Incorrect backup file permission (GLSA 200611-21)
Date: November 27, 2006
Kile uses default permissions for backup files, potentially leading to information disclosure.
Kile is a TeX/LaTeX editor for KDE.
Vulnerable: < 1.9.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.9.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Kile fails to set the same permissions on backup files as on the original file. This is similar to CVE-2005-1920.
A kile user may inadvertently grant access to sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Kile users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-editors/kile-1.9.2-r1"
