Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-06-25 12:19:00 UTC
CVE-2011-2147 (
  Openswan 2.2.x does not properly restrict permissions for (1)
  /var/run/, related to starter.c in the IPsec starter, and (2)
  /var/lock/subsys/ipsec, which allows local users to kill arbitrary processes
  by writing a PID to a file, or possibly bypass disk quotas by writing
  arbitrary data to a file, as demonstrated by files with 0666 permissions, a
  different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1784.
