Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in elf/dl-object.c in certain
modified versions of the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6), including
glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.6 and glibc-2.12-1.7.el6_0.3 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux,
allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted dynamic shared object
(DSO) in a subdirectory of the current working directory during execution of
a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program that has $ORIGIN in (a) RPATH or (b)
RUNPATH within the program itself or a referenced library. NOTE: this issue
exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2010-3847.
Maintainers, could you please check if Gentoo's glibc is affected by this?
pretty sure this is fixed in glibc-2.14
