Improper Link Resolution Before File Access ('Link Following')
The runtime linker in QNX Neutrino RTOS 6.5.0 before Service Pack 1 does not properly clear the LD_DEBUG_OUTPUT and LD_DEBUG environment variables when a program is spawned from a setuid program, which allows local users to overwrite files via a symlink attack.
CWE-59 - Improper Link Resolution Before File Access
'Improper link resolution before file access' occurs when software accesses a file resource but fails to verify that the file isn't a link or shortcut to another file. An attacker can potentially gain access to arbitrary files and from there the impact can vary, depending on the application, from sensitive data exposure to remote code execution.
