Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-04-26 08:03:28 UTC
From ${URL} :

A file overwrite vulnerability was found in passenger caused by a predictable temporary file being written by passenger-install-nginx-module. With access to the system, a user could 
plant a symlink in /tmp that resulted in a chosen-file overwrite attempt whenever passenger-install-nginx-module was run, using the access rights of the executing user, potentially 
even with chosen content.
