[GLSA-200611-23] Mono: Insecure temporary file creation

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Mono: Insecure temporary file creation

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200611-23
(Mono: Insecure temporary file creation)


Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security Team discovered that the
System.CodeDom.Compiler classes of Mono create temporary files with
insecure permissions.

Impact

A local attacker could create links in the temporary file directory,
pointing to a valid file somewhere on the filesystem. When an affected
class is called, this could result in the file being overwritten with
the rights of the user running the script.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
