Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Rpm Finder, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system and by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated privileges.
1) A boundary error in the "web()" function when handling data from a remote server can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into connecting to a malicious web server.
2) Insecure creation of files can be exploited via symlink attacks to truncate arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running rpf.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.2.2. Other versions may also be affected.
