Subject[PATCH RFC v2 3/4] coredump: mitigate privilege escalation of process coredump
Date
A set-uid executable might be a vector to a privilege escalation if the
system configures the coredump file name pattern as a relative
directory destiny. The full description of the vulnerability and
a demonstration of how we can exploit it can be found at [1].

We now check if the core dump pattern is relative. If it is, then we
verify if root owns the current directory and if it does, we deny
writing the core file unless the directory is universally writable.
