CVE-2011-0007

LOW
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

pimd 2.1.5 and possibly earlier versions allows user-assisted local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on (1) pimd.dump when a USR1 signal is sent, or (2) pimd.cache when USR2 is sent.
