Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200509-05] Net-SNMP: Insecure RPATH

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Net-SNMP: Insecure RPATH

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200509-05
(Net-SNMP: Insecure RPATH)


James Cloos reported that Perl modules from the Net-SNMP package
look for libraries in an untrusted location. This is due to a flaw in
the Gentoo package, and not the Net-SNMP suite.

Impact

A local attacker (member of the portage group) may be able to
create a shared object that would be loaded by the Net-SNMP Perl
modules, executing arbitrary code with the rights of the user
invoking the Perl script.

Workaround

Limit group portage access to trusted users.


Solution:
All Net-SNMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.2.1.2-r1"


Network Security Threat Level: Medium
