Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:1619 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: dstat security update 2009-11-30 15:23:22 UTC

Description Josh Bressers 2009-11-18 16:20:34 UTC
Robert Buchholz of the Gentoo Security Team reported that the dstat utilility contains a flaw in the python module search path used. dstat will search the current working directory for python modules.

If a local user is able to trick another user into running dstat in a directory containing a malicious module, they could perform arbitrary actions with the permissions of the victim.
