A vulnerability has been reported in Mono, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with escalated privileges.
The vulnerability is caused due to the way the "System.CodeDom.Compiler" classes use temporary files. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the application and potentially allows to inject arbitrary code into the running mono processes.
