Creation of Temporary File With Insecure Permissions


Severity Medium
Score 5.5/10


This affects all versions of package org.nanohttpd:nanohttpd. Whenever an HTTP Session is parsing the body of an HTTP request, the body of the request is written to a "RandomAccessFile" when it is larger than 1024 bytes. This file is created with insecure permissions that allow its contents to be viewed by all users on the host machine. Workaround: Manually specifying the argument when launching Java to set the temporary directory to a directory exclusively controlled by the current user can fix this issue.
