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

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

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

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
