FEDORA-2017-a3c7d077c7 created by pghmcfc 3 years ago for Fedora 25
stable

Cumulative bug-fix, enhancement and security update, including fix for CVE-2016-10374: perltidy relies on the current working directory for certain output files and did not have a symlink-attack protection mechanism, which allowed local users to overwrite arbitrary files by creating a symlink, as demonstrated by creating a perltidy.ERR symlink that the victim could not delete.

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2017-a3c7d077c7
