Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: EDE: Privilege escalation (GLSA 201812-05)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: 2018-12-06
Bug(s): #398241
ID: 201812-05


A vulnerability in EDE could result in privilege escalation.


A package that simplifies the task of creating, building, and debugging
large programs with Emacs. It provides some of the features of an IDE, or
Integrated Development Environment, in Emacs.

Affected Packages

Package: app-xemacs/ede
Vulnerable: < 1.07
Unaffected: >= 1.07
Architectures: All supported architectures


An untrusted search path vulnerability was discovered in EDE.


A local attacker could escalate his privileges via a specially crafted
Lisp expression in a Project.ede file in the directory or a parent
directory of an opened file.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All EDE users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-xemacs/ede-1.07"
