IBM AIX 'swcons' Insecure File Creation Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:5932

swcons in bos.rte.console in IBM AIX 5.2.0 through 6.1.1 allows local users in the system group to create or overwrite an arbitrary file and establish weak permissions and root ownership for this file via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this can be leveraged to gain privileges. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-5805.
