GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200306-14
- - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : tcptraceroute
SUMMARY : problems dropping root privileges
DATE : 2003-06-28 20:21 UTC
EXPLOIT : local
VERSIONS AFFECTED : <tcptraceroute-1.4-r1
FIXED VERSION : >=tcptraceroute-1.4
CVE : CAN-2003-0489

- - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

quote from cve:

"tcptraceroute 1.4 and earlier does not fully drop privileges after
obtaining a file descriptor for capturing packets, which may allow
local users to gain access to the descriptor via a separate
vulnerability in tcptraceroute."

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-analyzer/tcptraceroute upgrade to tcptraceroute-1.4-r1 as follows

emerge sync
emerge tcptraceroute
emerge clean
