[GLSA-200512-07] OpenLDAP, Gauche: RUNPATH issues

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
OpenLDAP, Gauche: RUNPATH issues

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200512-07
(OpenLDAP, Gauche: RUNPATH issues)


Gentoo packaging for OpenLDAP and Gauche may introduce insecure
paths into the list of directories that are searched for libraries at
runtime.

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 binary,
potentially resulting in privilege escalation.

Workaround

Only grant "portage" group rights to trusted users.


Solution:
All OpenLDAP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose net-nds/openldap
All Gauche users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/gauche-0.8.6-r1"


Network Security Threat Level: Low
