Title: RPM: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201811-22)
Bug(s): #533740, #638636
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in RPM, the worst of which
could allow a remote attacker to escalate privileges.
The Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) is a command line driven package
management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying,
querying, and updating computer software packages.
Vulnerable: < 4.14.1
Unaffected: >= 4.14.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in RPM. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker, by enticing the user to process a specially crafted
RPM file, could escalate privileges, execute arbitrary code, or cause a
Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All RPM users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-arch/rpm-4.14.1"
