[GLSA-200511-02] QDBM, ImageMagick, GDAL: RUNPATH issues

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
QDBM, ImageMagick, GDAL: RUNPATH issues

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-02
(QDBM, ImageMagick, GDAL: 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 QDBM users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/qdbm-1.8.33-r2"
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.2.4.2-r1"
All GDAL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose sci-libs/gdal


Network Security Threat Level: Low
