Package: noip2
Version: 2.1.9-3
Severity: important
Tags: security


1. /var/lib/noip2/noip2.conf is not writable by root[0] and

2. /bin/sh points to bash and

3. noip2 hasn't been started in such a weird configuration (i.e. /dev/shm/noip2-readwrite.conf does not exist yet)

a local user can prevent noip2 from starting by making /dev/shm/noip2-readwrite.conf a dangling symlink.

Worse still, if POSIXLY_CORRECT was set while running the init script, the attacker would be able to overwrite arbitrary files.

[0] Why would anyone want to do that?! Please revert patch for #524020, it doesn't make sense.
