Description Murray McAllister 2013-12-19 05:41:58 UTC
It was reported that the iodbctest and iodbctestw tools provided by the libiodbc package had an insecure RPATH (/tmp/) entry:


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

This issue did not affect the libiodbc packages in Fedora or EPEL, as the packages are built in /buildir/ and not /tmp/.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2013-12-20 19:09:22 UTC
As an addendum to comment #1 about fedora/epel packages not being vulnerable, we explicitly delete the rpaths from the binaries in question as part of the build process (using chrpath --delete)
