Description

Update to 1.4.1 stable release

CVE-2014-1639 syncevolution: insecure temporary file usage in installcheck-local.sh

It was found [1] that the installcheck-local.sh script of the syncevolution package creates temporary files in an insecure way. A local attacker could use these flaws to perform a symbolic link attack on the temporary files used by installcheck-local.sh.

NOTE: The vulnerable installcheck-local.sh script is not shipped in the syncevolution RPM package, but is included in the source and may be called at compile time. This flaw is therefore only a concern for those rebuilding the SRPM package. Regular users of the syncevolution package are not affected.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
