HP-UX 11.0 kmmodreg symlink problem



Vulnerability

    kmmodreg

Affected

    HPUX 11.0

Description

    kmmodreg  creates  two  files  in  /tmp:   /tmp/.kmmodreg_lock and
    /tmp/kmpath.tmp  which  cheerfully  follows  symlink  to  /dev/vg,
    /.rhosts and rest of them.

    kmmodreg creates the files with O_CREATE 666, or using the  umask.
    Since  kmmodreg  is  running  at  boot,  when  umsak is 000, it is
    possible to create the linked files with 666.
