CVE-2013-4419

Priority
Description
The guestfish command in libguestfs 1.20.12, 1.22.7, and earlier, when
using the --remote or --listen option, does not properly check the
ownership of /tmp/.guestfish-$UID/ when creating a temporary socket file in
this directory, which allows local users to write to the socket and execute
arbitrary commands by creating /tmp/.guestfish-$UID/ in advance.
