Title: Scala: Privilege escalation (GLSA 201812-08)
A vulnerability in Scala could result in privilege escalation.
Scala combines object-oriented and functional programming in one
concise, high-level language.
Vulnerable: < 2.12.4
Unaffected: >= 2.12.4
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that Scala’s compilation daemon does not properly
manage permissions for private files.
A local attacker could escalate privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Scala users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/scala-2.12.4"
