Bugzilla: 1034261: CVE-2013-6412 augeas: incorrect permissions set on newly created files


The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The transform_save function in transform.c in Augeas 1.0.0 through 1.1.0 does not properly calculate the permission values when the umask contains a "7," which causes world-writable permissions to be used for new files and allows local users to modify the files via unspecified vectors.
