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-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.

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-scheme/gauche-0.8.6-r1'
