Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200510-14] Perl, Qt-UnixODBC, CMake: RUNPATH issues

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Perl, Qt-UnixODBC, CMake: RUNPATH issues

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-14
(Perl, Qt-UnixODBC, CMake: RUNPATH issues)


Some packages may introduce insecure paths into the list of directories
that are searched for libraries at runtime. Furthermore, packages
depending on the MakeMaker Perl module for build configuration may have
incorrectly copied the LD_RUN_PATH into the DT_RPATH.

Impact

A local attacker, who is a member of the "portage" group, could create
a malicious shared object in the Portage temporary build directory that
would be loaded at runtime by a dependent executable, potentially
resulting in privilege escalation.

Workaround

Only grant "portage" group rights to trusted users.


Solution:
All Perl users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose dev-lang/perl
All Qt-UnixODBC users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/qt-unixODBC-3.3.4-r1"
All CMake users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose dev-util/cmake


Network Security Threat Level: Low
