Description Bert DeKnuydt 2002-07-24 11:10:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

Description of problem:
All libraries in /usr/lib/qt3/lib contain a relative
rpath.  So all applications linked against them
potentially load untrusted libraries.
This is for qt-3.0.3-11

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /usr/lib/qt3/lib
2.readelf -d lib*.so* | grep path

Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2003-04-02 18:19:19 EST
I see paths in libqtmcop* in RHL9. Same problem? The same is true for a whole
lot of other libs though...
Comment 4 Kjartan Maraas 2003-04-02 18:20:06 EST
Took the liberty to reassign this to new owner too.
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2003-04-10 11:11:14 EDT
readelf -d /usr/lib/libqtmcop.so* | grep path
0x0000000f (RPATH) Library rpath: [/usr/lib:/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib]
0x0000000f (RPATH) Library rpath: [/usr/lib:/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib]
0x0000000f (RPATH) Library rpath: [/usr/lib:/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib:/usr/X11R6/lib]

i don't see the security problem here.
