Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: BURP: Root privilege escalation (GLSA 201904-05)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: 2019-04-02
Bug(s): #641842
ID: 201904-05


A vulnerability was discovered in Gentoo's ebuild for BURP which
could lead to root privilege escalation.


A network backup and restore program.

Affected Packages

Package: app-backup/burp
Vulnerable: < 2.1.32-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.1.32-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


It was discovered that Gentoo’s BURP ebuild does not properly set
permissions or place the pid file in a safe directory. Additionally, the
first set of patches did not completely address this. As such, a
revision has been made available that addresses all concerns of the
initial report.


A local attacker could escalate privileges.


Users should ensure the proper permissions are set as discussed in the
referenced bugs.


All BURP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-backup/burp-2.1.32-r1"
