Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-02-20 09:29:03 UTC
From debian bugzilla at $URL:

$ ls -ld ~/.local/{,share/{,uzbl/{,cookies.txt}}}
drwxr-xr-x 3 user users 4096 Feb  9 23:29 /home/user/.local/
drwxr-xr-x 4 user users 4096 Feb  9 23:29 /home/user/.local/share/
drwxr-xr-x 2 user users 4096 Feb  9 23:29 /home/user/.local/share/uzbl/
-rw-rw-rw- 1 user users  732 Feb  9 23:29 /home/user/.local/share/uzbl/cookies.txt

This allows local users to steal cookies (and tamper with them).

I consider it as upstream/ebuild because anyone is able to change permission
without upstream support

Apologies, =www-client/uzbl-2011.11.18 does not contain the patch, however =www-client/uzbl-2012.05.14 does. =www-client/uzbl-2012.05.14 should be stabled instead. Thank you!
