Reporter Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2019 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Description

Eric Romang discovered that heartbeat created temporary files in an insecure manner. This could allow a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with root privileges as soon as heartbeat is started.

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