    Severity: Medium
    Date    : 2020-05-20
    CVE-ID  : CVE-2020-1945
    Package : ant
    Type    : arbitrary command execution
    Remote  : No
    Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1159
    
    Summary
    =======
    
    The package ant before version 1.10.8-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary
    command execution.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Upgrade to 1.10.8-1.
    
    # pacman -Syu "ant>=1.10.8-1"
    
    The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.10.8.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    None.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    Apache Ant uses the default temporary directory identified by the Java
    system property java.io.tmpdir for several tasks and may thus leak
    sensitive information. The fixcrlf and replaceregexp tasks also copy
    files from the temporary directory back into the build tree allowing an
    attacker to inject modified source files into the build process.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A local malicious user can inject code into the ant build process.
