Blender quit.blend symlink
|blender-quitblend-symlink (42153)||Medium Risk|
Blender could allow a local attacker to launch a symlink attack, caused by the improper handling of temporary files that are created with insecure permissions. A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability by creating a symbolic link from the /tmp/quit.blend temporary file to other files on the system chich would allow the attacker to overwrite arbitrary files on the system with the privileges of the victim or obtain sensitive information.
