rPath Security Advisory: 2006-0105-1
Products: rPath Linux 1
Exposure Level Classification:
Local Root Non-deterministic Privilege Escalation
In previous versions of arts, the artswrapper program has a
vulnerability which enables a local users to escalate to root
privileges if the artswrapper program is setuid root. In rPath Linux,
artswrapper is not setuid root, but if users or derivative
distributions have modified artswrapper to make it setuid root, they
may be vulnerable to this attack.
