LMH and Johnny Pwnerseed have reported a security issue in Unsanity Application Enhancer, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.
The problem is caused due to the directory "/Library/Frameworks" being installed with insecure permissions (writable by the "admin" group). This can be exploited e.g. to gain escalated privileges by replacing the "ApplicationEnhancer.framework" directory.
Successful exploitation requires membership to the "admin" group.
The security issue is reported in version 2.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.4.8 on a x86 platform. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Add only trusted users to the "admin" group.
