pytest 6.2.3 (2021-04-03)

Bug Fixes

  • #8414: pytest used to create directories under /tmp with world-readable
    permissions. This means that any user in the system was able to read
    information written by tests in temporary directories (such as those created by
    the tmp_path/tmpdir fixture). Now the directories are created with
    private permissions.

    pytest used silenty use a pre-existing /tmp/pytest-of-<username> directory,
    even if owned by another user. This means another user could pre-create such a
    directory and gain control of another user's temporary directory. Now such a
    condition results in an error.
