Description
keepalived 2.0.8 didn't check for existing plain files when writing data to a temporary file upon a call to PrintData or PrintStats. If a local attacker had previously created a file with the expected name (e.g., /tmp/keepalived.data or /tmp/keepalived.stats), with read access for the attacker and write access for the keepalived process, then this potentially leaked sensitive information.
Impact
Access Vector: Local
Access Complexity: Media
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: No impact on system integrity + Partially affects on system confidentiality + No impact on system availability
