|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Smb4K: Arbitrary command execution as root (GLSA 201705-14)
A vulnerability in Smb4K could allow local attackers to execute
commands as root.
Smb4K is a SMB/CIFS (Windows) share browser for KDE.
Vulnerable: < 1.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.2.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Smb4k contains a logic flaw in which mount helper binary does not
properly verify the mount command it is being asked to run.
A local user can execute commands with the root privilege due to the
mount helper being installed as suid.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Smb4K users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/smb4k-1.2.3-r1:4"
