helvis -- information leak vulnerabilities


Once a recovery file has been preserved by the setuid root elvprsv utility it is placed in a worldreadable directory with worldreadable permissions. This possibly allows sensitive information to leak.

In addition to this information leak, it is possible for users to recover files that belong to other users by using elvrec, another setuid root binary.
