wine -- information disclosure due to insecure temporary file handling


Due to insecure temporary file creation in the Wine Windows emulator, it is possible for any user to read potentially sensitive information from temporary registry files.

When a Win32 application is launched by wine, wine makes a dump of the Windows registry in /tmp with name regxxxxyyyy.tmp , where xxxxxx is the pid in hexadecimal value of the current wine process and yyyy is an integer value usually equal to zero.

regxxxxyyyy.tmp is created with 0644 (-rw-r--r--) permissions. This could represent a security problem in a multi-user environment. Indeed, any local user could access to windows regstry's dump and get sensitive information, like passwords and other private data.
