Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
lib/ansible/playbook/__init__.py in Ansible 1.2.x before 1.2.3, when playbook does not run due to an error, allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a retry file with a predictable name in /var/tmp/ansible/.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
