CVE-2016-10374

Priority
Description
perltidy through 20160302, as used by perlcritic, check-all-the-things, and
other software, relies on the current working directory for certain output
files and does not have a symlink-attack protection mechanism, which allows
local users to overwrite arbitrary files by creating a symlink, as
demonstrated by creating a perltidy.ERR symlink that the victim cannot
delete.
