Description Tomas Hoger 2008-08-05 12:27:07 EDT
frysk packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are built with an insecure RPATH set in the ELF header of the multiple binaries shipped in the package.

This issue can possibly be exploited by a local attacker to run arbitrary code
as some other user if victim user can be convinced to run one of the affected frysk commands in an attacker controlled directory with specially crafted content.

Affected binaries: /usr/bin/f* (e.g. fcore, fcatch, fstack, fstep, ...)
Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-08-05 12:32:16 EDT
This issue does not affect current frysk-0.4-0 packages in Fedora.
