Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-07 18:04:04 UTC
From the Secunia advisory at:

A security issue has been reported in VIPS, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.

The security issue is caused due to the vips-7.22 script incorrectly setting the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This can be exploited to gain escalated privileges e.g. by tricking a user into running the script in a directory containing a malicious library.

The security issue is reported in versions prior to 7.22.3.

7.22.4 that fixes this problem is in the tree. Arch teams stabilize it and also stabilize nip2 as it's good idea for them to go stable together.
