Service Pack Installation Does Not Honor Umask - Installs Files World Readable (Doc ID 2098547.1)

Oracle Network Management for Utilities - DMS - Version 1.12.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 1.12.0.3 version, Installation


The patch bundle installation does not honor umask - installs files world readable.

The Oracle NMS installation process recommends a umask of 027 to improve security. (users who are not the owner or in the group of the owner cannot read/write/execute the file). The profile.template umask is 027.

An audit shows that after installing the 1.12.0.3.2  patch, it has created a lot of files that are world readable.


The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1.Install 1.12.0.3.2 patch bundle
2. Query the nms/product/1.12.0.3.2 files to locate any that have read permissions for the world.
