Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Smb4K: Arbitrary command execution as root (GLSA 201705-14)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: 2017-05-26
Bug(s): #618106
ID: 201705-14

Synopsis

A vulnerability in Smb4K could allow local attackers to execute
commands as root.


Background

Smb4K is a SMB/CIFS (Windows) share browser for KDE.

Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/smb4k
Vulnerable: < 1.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.2.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Smb4k contains a logic flaw in which mount helper binary does not
properly verify the mount command it is being asked to run.


Impact

A local user can execute commands with the root privilege due to the
mount helper being installed as suid.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Smb4K users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/smb4k-1.2.3-r1:4"
