------- Original comment by Leonard den Ottolander on 2005.01.27 16:48 -------

Silvio Cesare discovered a potential information leak in glibc. It
allows LD_DEBUG on SUID binaries where it should not be allowed. This
has various security implications, which may be used to gain
confidentional information.
