Description Murray McAllister 2013-12-19 05:35:14 UTC
It was reported that certain binaries provided by the llvm package had an insecure RPATH (/tmp/) entry:


This could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the affected binaries.

This issue did not affect any llvm or mingw-llvm packages in Fedora or EPEL, as the packages are built in /buildir/, not /tmp/.
