Description Ville Skyttä 2006-07-19 15:40:26 UTC
See bug 193957 comment 17 (and a potential fix in comment 16 there):

/usr/bin/nant from nant-0.85-5.fc6 tries to execute NAnt.exe from a path
containing the build root, ie. /var/tmp/... which is world writable, resulting
in arbitrary command execution vulnerability.

Comment 1 Paul F. Johnson 2006-07-20 12:26:42 UTC
This has been fixed in 0.85-6
