|Description:||From the Red Hat bugzilla:
It was reported that perf would look for configuration files in /etc/perfconfig, ~/.perfconfig, and ./config. If ./config is not a perf configuration file, perf could fail or possibly do unexpected things. If a privileged user was tricked into running perf in a directory containing a malicious ./config file, it could possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary commands.
