GLSA-200802-06 : scponly: Multiple vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2014 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-200802-06
(scponly: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Joachim Breitner reported that Subversion and rsync support invokes
subcommands in an insecure manner (CVE-2007-6350). It has also been
discovered that scponly does not filter the -o and -F options to the
scp executable (CVE-2007-6415).

Impact :

A local attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to elevate
privileges and execute arbitrary commands on the vulnerable host.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All scponly users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/scponly-4.8'
Due to the design of scponly's Subversion support, security
restrictions can still be circumvented. Please read carefully the
SECURITY file included in the package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 8.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)
