Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: January 27, 2014
Bug(s): #398227
ID: 201401-31

Synopsis

A vulnerability in CEDET could result in privilege escalation.

Background

CEDET is a Collection of Emacs Development Environment Tools written
with the end goal of creating an advanced development environment in
Emacs.


Affected Packages

Package: app-emacs/cedet
Vulnerable: < 1.0.1
Unaffected: >= 1.0.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

An untrusted search path vulnerability was discovered in CEDET.

Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All CEDET users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emacs/cedet-1.0.1"
   
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since February 01, 2012. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
