Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: OpenDKIM: Root privilege escalation (GLSA 201904-22)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2019-04-22
Bug(s): #629914
ID: 201904-22


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


A community effort to develop and maintain a C library for producing
DKIM-aware applications and an open source milter for providing DKIM

Affected Packages

Package: mail-filter/opendkim
Vulnerable: < 2.10.3-r8
Unaffected: >= 2.10.3-r8
Architectures: All supported architectures


It was discovered that Gentoo’s OpenDKIM ebuild does not properly set
permissions or place the pid file in a safe directory.


A local attacker could escalate privileges.


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


All OpenDKIM users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-filter/opendkim-2.10.3-r8"
