CVE-2018-13054

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in Cinnamon 1.9.2 through 3.8.6. The
cinnamon-settings-users.py GUI runs as root and allows configuration of
(for example) other users' icon files in _on_face_browse_menuitem_activated
and _on_face_menuitem_activated. These icon files are written to the
respective user's $HOME/.face location. If an unprivileged user prepares a
symlink pointing to an arbitrary location, then this location will be
overwritten with the icon content.
