Kile uses default permissions for backup files, potentially leading to information disclosure.
|Package||app-editors/kile on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.9.2-r1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.9.2-r1|
Kile is a TeX/LaTeX editor for KDE.
Kile fails to set the same permissions on backup files as on the original file. This is similar to CVE-2005-1920.
A kile user may inadvertently grant access to sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Kile users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-editors/kile-1.9.2-r1"
