When decompressing archive the utility failed to use the
O_EXCLflag which could lead to the utility overwriting files without warning.
In addition the utility did not securely create new files causing a race condition between creating the file and setting the correct permissions.
When compressing a file pointed to by a symbolic link, the
bzip2utility incorrectly stored the permissions of
the symbolic link instead of the file. This may result in potentially
lax file permissions (
rwxr-xr-x), causing the decompressed file to be
rpm -Uvh bzip.rpm
