According to the bug report details that's a race condition.
A malicious user is using a vulnerability in the way the
installation script handles changing file permissions to disclose
sensitive information.

Yes. And, once again, that's a misconfiguration - the file should
be created as 0600 root:root during installation and only after
that chmod() and chown() may be applied.


I'd agree if this were a configuration file we were talking about, but it's an installation script.
