Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2006:007: binutils,kdelibs3,kdegraphics3,koffice,dia,lyx

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the binutils,kdelibs3,kdegraphics3,koffice,dia,lyx package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:007 (binutils,kdelibs3,kdegraphics3,koffice,dia,lyx).


A SUSE specific patch to the GNU linker 'ld' removes redundant RPATH
and RUNPATH components when linking binaries.

Due to a bug in this routine ld occasionally left empty RPATH
components. When running a binary with empty RPATH components the
dynamic linker tries to load shared libraries from the current
directory.

By tricking users into running an affected application in a
directory that contains a specially crafted shared library an
attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user id of the
victim.
